10.00am – 5.00pm at the Nottingham Trent University, Clifton Campus NG11 8NS

This October, come and sing a selection of well-loved choruses from Mendelssohn’s Oratorio epic Elijah, Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach’s sparkling Magnificat and the beautiful Vilja chorus from Lehár’s opera The Merry Widow.

Music for Everyone is delighted to welcome guest conductor and dynamic workshop leader Sam Evans. Much in demand for workshops for singers of all kinds, Sam has run events for large choirs such as Highgate Choral Society, The London Chorus and Henley Choral Society. He has run numerous “Come and Sing” workshops, on repertoire ranging from opera choruses to pop music from movie soundtracks.

Sam brings to his workshops his infectious enthusiasm for singing, and his ability to explain his methods in a clear and accessible way. He draws on his 15 years experience as a member of the Monteverdi Choir, and his long experience as a singing teacher and soloist, to draw the best out of the singers he works with. A seasoned and acclaimed Chorus Master, with a star-studded roster including the BBC Singers, the Monteverdi Choir, and for the Swedish Radio Choir, Nottingham’s choral singers are in for an absolute treat.
