Choir Workshop

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

We love performing with our Carnival Choirs and we invite you to join us for A Carnival of Carols on our December tour. There are no auditions and the choirs are open to all. Each choir will have a one-day workshop led by Andy Watts at which singers will learn arrangements in four-part harmony from the band's extensive repertoire of festive music. You will be able to download sheet music and recordings to help you learn your part, and on the day of the concert there will be a final rehearsal with The Carnival Band. This year, the choirs will join us at Heath Street Baptist Church in Hampstead, London and The Cube in Malvern.

As in 2017, Maddy Prior will not be joining us, so the choir will take centre stage and sing about half the items in the concert.
