Workshop in Rotterdam – updated

On 25 April we will hold our long awaited Choral Workshop!

Led by Matthew Beetschen, it will take place at St. Mary’s Church, Rotterdam – Pieter de Hoochweg 133; 3024 BG Rotterdam. For directions to the church

Matthew is organist of Dunblane Cathedral in Scotland and RSCM Area Chairman for the whole of Scotland. He is also a member of the RSCM Voluntary Forum and an examiner for the Voice for Life Bronze and Sliver medals.

The workshop will begin at 10.30 am (church open at 10 am) and end around 4.30 pm. Coffee and tea will be provided, but please bring your own lunch.

The programme will include attention to choral singing, sight reading and repertoire. 

Importantly, as we will be holding our first exams for the Bronze and Silver medals on 13 June, Matthew will also run a session on the Bronze and Silver medals, e.g. the expected standard of music and repertoire.

Music will be provided, but it may be necessary to bring some music yourself. More details to follow.

These workshops provide an excellent opportunity to ask questions on repertoire, technique etc. and a chance to meet fellow singers in other choirs.

The costs of the day are €25 per person, as we need to refund Matthew’s travel expenses and also pay a contribution to St. Mary’s church.However, if the number of attendants is sufficiently high, we will be able to reduce the costs per person! This will be calculated on the day itself.

If you would like to attend, please reply to Martin van Bleek indicating how many people you think will be in your party so we can get an idea of expected numbers.

We look forward to seeing you on 25 April.
