Gabrieli Roar: Join Our Pride
Artistic excellence; social inclusion
Gabrieli Roar is an ambitious training scheme for exceptional teenage singers. Working with six partner youth choirs across the UK, we are providing 250 young musicians with unique opportunities to perform and record side-by-side with Gabrieli’s professional musicians.
Our inclusion of young singers at the heart of Gabrieli’s core artistic activity is what makes Gabrieli Roar stand apart from other educational projects, and is driven by Artistic Director Paul McCreesh’s desire to offer challenging opportunities to young people.
At the heart of the training scheme is a training and mentoring programme in which members of Gabrieli work closely with individual choirs on an ongoing basis. In 2016-17 we expanded the scheme to work with more choirs, presenting a series of regional concerts which bring the Gabrieli Roar experience to our choirs’ own communities. All eyes are now fixed on our July 2018 residential course, preparing our partner choirs for the epic choral extravaganza An English Coronation.
We are determined that geography, background or financial means should never be a barrier to participation and to experiencing great choral music. We therefore make only very minimal charges to participants and offer a large number of bursaries. In order to achieve this level of inclusion, we need to raise a substantial amount of money, and we are inviting donors to JOIN OUR PRIDE, actively supporting our aim to give teenage singers an unparalleled opportunity to engage with the great canon of choral repertoire, inspiring the next generation of performers and audiences.
