Thousands of singers from around the world are this week starting their virtual Summer School 2020 with The Self-Isolation Choir which includes a series of Quanta Qualia masterclasses!
At this time of self-isolation, regular choir rehearsals and concerts have been postponed or cancelled. The Self-Isolation Choir has been created by a superb team to bring together – virtually – singers from around the world.
‘The Splendour of Church Anthems & Quanta Qualia‘ is the second week of the summer school. I’ve created a series of videos talking singers through their part for Quanta Qualia and the brilliant Fieri Consort have also recorded the work. All the tutorials will help each singer to master their part.
Alongside the rest of the team, singers will also be able to take part in a programme of some of the best-loved and most requested pieces in the canon – Handel’s Zadok the Priest, Parry’s incredible I Was Glad and Stanford’s The Bluebird. The Summer School culminates in a performance of Vivaldi’s Gloria.
