Song of Mary Workshop

An Afternoon with Jonathan Willcocks...

Sunday October 8th, 2017
Windsor Boys School, 2-5pm

The Royal Free Singers are delighted to let you know about an exciting event this Autumn. We have commissioned a new work from Jonathan Willcocks, our patron, which we will perform at our concert on 2 December.

To help us prepare for this, we have arranged an Afternoon Workshop on Sunday 8 October which will be led by Jonathan himself - and we are inviting others to join us! This will be a unique opportunity to work with a living composer on a completely new piece of choral music. As well as working through the score, Jonathan will also talk about the meaning behind the work and about the musical styles he uses to convey that meaning.

The piece, called "The Song of Mary", uses a variety of texts from different times and sources. It is scored for soprano solo, SATB choir and orchestra. As it has been written with our choir in mind, it will be very suitable and interesting for many other community choirs and choral societies in the future, after its premiere on 2 December.

Be in at the beginning!!
