The Durham Singers have two vacancies for basses and bass-baritones, starting from September 2016. The choir is a 40-voice auditioned chamber choir that puts on 3-4 concerts per year. The choir’s core repertoire is an exciting mixture of unaccompanied music, from the Renaissance to works by contemporary composers, and additionally, they usually perform one major early work with a period instrument orchestra.
This free workshop offers a fantastic opportunity to delve into the performance practice of the medieval conductus (a close cousin to the medieval organum and motet), led by the world-class tenors John Potter, Christopher O’Gorman and Rogers Covey-Crump. This free workshop is open to all and is sponsored by the Arts & Humanities Research Council.
