Mozart: Mass in C Minor
Belmont Chapel Exeter, 9.30am - 5.00pm
Directed by Aidan Oliver, with accompanist Peter Adcock
We are very grateful to Run By Singers for sponsoring this year's workshop. Please click to see details of their programme of holidays for singers.
Our annual choral workshop is an open invitation for singers from far and wide to join us in a day’s exploration and cameo performance of a masterwork in the choral repertoire. In 2019 we are tackling Mozart's Mass in C Minor.
Nigel Perrin won’t be able, for health reasons, to lead our choral workshop on 19 January. However, we’re delighted to have been able to persuade Aidan Oliver to take his place. We worked with Aidan a couple of years ago, when he conducted us in the Bach Christmas Oratorio. As the reviewer of that concert said,
“Perhaps we could see Aidan Oliver in Exeter again – his direction certainly brought much evident pleasure to both participants and audience."
Aidan is a top flight conductor, who has just added the Directorship of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus to his portfolio. You can read more about him here.
