Mozart Requiem Workshop – 8 September 2018

Come and join us for a vocal work shop with one of the country’s leading voice coaches, and for a chance to work on Mozart’s Requiem on Saturday, 8th September at 10:00am, Church of the Holy Spirit, Narbonne Avenue, Clapham, SW4 9JU.

Tickets are available from Eventbrite

Mozart’s Requiem is a cornerstone of the choral repertoire and a wonderfully uplifting piece, both to perform and to listen to. If you’ve never sung it or haven’t sung it for a while, this is a perfect opportunity for you to enjoy one of choral music’s great experiences in a friendly, fun atmosphere. Joanna Tomlinson is a leading vocal trainer and workshop leader. Her recent engagements include UK Choir Festival, ABCD, London Choral Conducting Masterclasses, and the Gabrieli Consort ‘Roar’ and Philharmonia Orchestra education schemes.

Joanna is Music Director of the Whitehall Choir, one of London’s leading amateur choirs. She is also the Music Director of the internationally renowned Farnham Youth Choirs, and of Constanza Chorus in London. She is Associate Director of East London Chorus and is on the tutor panel for the Association of British Choral Directors. Joanna has worked with BBC Symphony Chorus, London Symphony Chorus, National Youth Choir of Great Britain, National Youth Choir of Wales, Joyful Company of Singers, Royal College of Music Chorus, Manchester Chamber Choir, Trinity Laban Junior College Choirs and Wimbledon Choral Society.

Our accompanist will be the award winning Ian Tindale.

Joanna has transformed the sound of our choir and won us many new members, but we’re always keen to add fresh voices – especially tenors.
