On Wednesday 24 March, a very special Choir Workshop was led by two singers from the internationally acclaimed VOCES8 choral group, supported by its VOCES8 Foundation for education. Katie Jeffries-Harris, alto, and Chris Moore, baritone, led the session watched by Year 13 Music students in the Chapel with others Zooming from home.
Mr Emery said: “With touring stopped due to Covid, VOCES8’s singers put more time into education. The group is very much in vogue and we’re lucky to have booked them.
“It was a great workshop with the Senior Choir in the Chapel being put through their paces by the professionals on-screen. The interactive technology worked very well, and the choir really enjoyed it. Our thanks to Katie and Chris for leading the workshop.”
Choir Member Coby O’Brien said: “I really enjoyed the opportunity to have a session with such skillful singers, and they really helped us to consider not only our original singing, but also how to blend together as an ensemble. Although we may not have the opportunity to work together as a choir in the next five months, I shall still take away what we learned in that session.”
