In preparation for our Spring concert in Guildford on the 29th April 2017, Epworth Choir is opening its doors and inviting you to join for a day’s workshop on Rutter’s beautiful and accessible Requiem.
Conducted by Michael Waldron and accompanied by Laurence Williams, we will also be joined by critically-acclaimed soprano, Augusta Hebbert. In addition to singing, she will also be leading elements of the workshop working on good singing and vocal technique in an applied setting. The day will culminate with an informal performance of the work in the warm and pleasant surroundings of Trinity Methodist Church.
