Award-winning conductor Nigel Short will be visiting the Eton Choral Course in August 2014 to work with the aspiring young singers. Nigel writes:
“I’m very much looking forward to meeting and working with the youngsters on the ECC having heard so many great things from other conductors who have worked on the course before. Helping and enthusing these youngsters is such an important step in securing a great future for choral music in the UK that I’m very proud to be a part of it and hope we can achieve some magical results together.”
The course is due to take place in Cheltenham College, and the singers will be focusing on repertoire that includes works by Tallis, Howells, Parry and Tavener.
The Eton Choral Courses are week-long, residential summer courses for singers aged 16-20, which provide intensive, fun weeks of training in singing and choral music. For 35 years, we have been at the forefront of choral scene for young singers in the UK and offer a unique opportunity to perform at the highest level with like-minded musicians.
