What I’m doing and what I’m thinking.
As part of their annual Choral Pilgrimage tour, The Sixteen run a series of choral workshops, based on their concert repertoire. There was a nice link this year, via John Sheppard, to a Durham Singers concert next March, so two of us went to the choral workshop at Greyfriars Kirk in Edinburgh.
Ushaw College is opening its doors to the world, and I’m involved in planning a series of concerts in the amazing spaces that the college offers. There’ll be jazz, folk and classical concerts, in the gothic magnificence of St Cuthbert’s chapel, in the theatre and in the informal, relaxed setting of the former reading room. I’m very excited about the possibilities the college buildings offer for music and about the concerts we’ve got lined up.
