Come and Sing with Bob Chilcott

Saturday 28th September 2019, 10:30 am – 4:30 pm

The Shepherd Hall, St Olave’s School, Queen Anne’s Road, York
YO30 7WA

Director: Bob Chilcott
Accompanist: Benjamin Morris

After last year’s successful event, we’re delighted to be hosting another of the hugely popular Bob Chilcott choral workshops, ‘Come and Sing’. Here’s why we hope you’ll join us:

Bob Chilcott has that very rare combination – a fantastic global performing pedigree AND unparalleled talent as a composer and coach. And as a former member of the Kings Singers, Bob is uniquely placed to share some of their exquisite musicianship and wonderful good humour with enthusiastic singers around the country. Delightfully entertaining and always encouraging, Bob will take us through some great singing techniques that really work! And he’ll draw on some of his finest compositions to inspire us through the day.  Music will be provided.

Tickets cost £20 for adults, £5 for under 18s and students, available from Eventbrite using the Buy Tickets button below.
