CHORAL WORKSHOP with James Gilchrist

Charlton Kings Choral Society is delighted to announce that our President, international tenor James Gilchrist, will lead a choral workshop for members of the Society and for other choral singers, on 15th June 2019.

The workshop will focus on two contrasting works: the well-known and much loved Mozart Requiem (which CKCS will be performing in the Pittville Pump Room on 23 November) and Tippett Five Negro Spirituals.

The venue for the workshop is in the centre of Cheltenham at St Andrew’s United Reformed Church, Montpellier St, GL50 1SP. Registration will commence at 10.00 am with the workshop planned to start at 10.30 am and continue until about 4.15 pm.

The cost is £20 for CKCS members, £25 for non-members. This price includes music hire and refreshments (coffee/tea and cake). Lunch will not be provided, so participants are encouraged to bring a packed lunch or to buy food in the local area.
