Tonbridge Philharmonic Society normally organise every year a very popular choral workshop, open to all, led by their Music Director Matthew Willis.
The workshops are generally held on a Saturday afternoon at Tonbridge School - and involve learning some basic singing techniques, then working on the chosen work. Previous works have included Handel's Messiah in 2015, Mozart's Requiem in 2016 and Elgar’s Dream of Gerontius in 2017.
Testimonials: "A fantastic workshop today! Tricky bits of the Messiah well and truly conquered!! Hallelujah!"
"What a fantastic Workshop we've had this afternoon. Grateful thanks to all who made it possible. It was the highlight of this year for me!"
What a thoroughly enjoyable day. The experience, expertise and excitement of the conductor were easily transmitted to the singers who consequently gave it everything they'd got! Thank you to all those who made the event go so smoothly."
A music score can be provided, or bring your own, and tea and cake is an essential part of the workshop!
All are welcome - including members of other choirs and tenors, basses and sopranos always more than welcome!
And those who are interested in joining the Society, may find the workshop a useful way to get a taster of what it would be like to be a choral member.
