Choral workshop with Brian Kay, 18th June 2016
June 18th 1016
Time 9.30 - 5.30
Founder member of the Kings’ Singers, Principal Conductor of The Really Big Chorus, Artistic Director of the Burford Singers, award-winning broadcaster, former conductor of the Leith Hill Musical Festival and former director of the Huddersfield Choral Society, the voice of Papageno in the film Amadeus and the lowest frog in the Paul McCartney song We All Stand Together (The Frog’s Chorus), conductor extraordinaire – Brian Kay has played and continues to play a major role in the world of choral music, both here in the UK and abroad. We are delighted that he has agreed to come to Edington to run a choral workshop on two works dear to his heart, ‘Lux Aeterna’ by Morten Lauridsen, and the opening movement from John Rutter’s ‘Magnificat’. The two styles of music will complement each other beautifully. Organ and piano accompaniment will be provided by Robin Baggs, a long-term colleague of Brian’s.
Later in the year, ‘O Nata Lux’ from Lux Aeterna will form part of one of the services at the Edington Music Festival, sung by the Consort under Jeremy Summerly.
A full schedule will be emailed to all applicants in May.
