Elijah, July 2022
“we have been able to adjust to a professional environment and gain valuable experience as we have been given the responsibility of performing in such a prestigious venue and have been working with elite musicians” – Fenella, Egglescliffe Senior Choir
This summer our Gabrieli Roar residential course returns, culminating in a performance of Mendelssohn’s Elijah alongside our professional musicians. This five-day intensive and high-quality choral project is an excellent opportunity for young singers to excel, develop their confidence in their own abilities and nurture a love of choral music.
Accommodation: 22-26 July, Oundle School, Northamptonshire
Performance: 26 July, Ely Cathedral, Cambridgeshire
Nominal fee of £200 per member (means-tested bursaries provided)
Suitable for the 14-18 age group
We will provide music for all choir members, organise all logistics relating to the residential and performance, and provide support or assistance of any sort. Partner choirs are expected to organise their own transport to Oundle School and from Ely Cathedral, submit required forms and provide up-to-date safeguarding, child protection and risk assessments.
In advance of the project, there will be at least one kickstarter rehearsal session, to take place in your rehearsal time, where you rehearse. This will be with Artistic Director Paul McCreesh, or Chorus Directors Charles MacDougall or Emily Dickens.
Gabrieli Roar aims to provide participants with an inspirational choral experience, and we wish to work in partnership with our choirs to ensure that everyone feels involved in the process.
