A Cappella Ensemble with Nicholas Mulroy

8 - 14 September 2019



The Course

The vocal chamber music course will run for five days, and will have as its focus repertoire written between 1600 and 1760. The mornings will be dedicated to solo singing, looking as physical, dramatic, technical, and musical challenges of the repertoire, sharing and exploring ideas and inspirations. The afternoons offer the chance to sing in small groups, and to work on high-level ensemble music making. There is lots to explore – heaps of wonderful repertoire, enhancing understanding of style, how best to deliver text and meaning, and more – and the course will culminate in a performance in a local venue.

Born in Liverpool, Nicholas studied Modern Languages at Cambridge and voice at the RAM. He has performed all over the world from Sydney Opera House to the BBC Proms via Carnegie Hall, and is known particularly for his performances of baroque repertoire. He has sung with many of the leading conductors and ensembles of our time, and recorded repertoire from Byrd and Monteverdi to Astor Piazzolla and Gavin Bryars. Also a dedicated and passionate teacher, he has given masterclasses throughout Europe and in the USA. He teaches at Goldsmiths, the University of Cambridge (and is a Musician in Residence at Girton College), and was Distinguished Artist at ANU in Canberra.

For this course to run successfully we need a minimum of 10 singers/arrangers. Please register your interest in participating via email or by telephoning Jane Ebel; and we will keep you up to date with dates and events.
