Following the HUGE success of the ‘Magnificat Concert’ in September at the North Wales International Music Festival, between Welsh National Opera and NEW Sinfonia, I am delighted to announce I have been re-invited to work with the WNO Community Chorus North. In February, I will be conducting the Chorus in music by Mozart, Strauss and Oliver Tarney. This is a great opportunity for community choirs across Wales and beyond to come together, celebrate their love of singing, and receive helpful advice from an expert panel of adjudicators on how to enhance their performance. This event will be held in partnership with Welsh National Opera, Sing for Pleasure and CânSing. Each participating choir will have a 10-minute slot during the day to perform their chosen programme to all other choirs present; they’ll also receive friendly, constructive adjudication, pick up repertoire and performance ideas, join in a massed sing and generally have fun networking with like-minded people.
