The Global Singing Project
Want to sing some splendid choral repertoire? Concert opportunities looking a little sparse? We may well have the answer. We are hosting thirty open choir rehearsals every Wednesday and Friday at 5.30pm London time starting on 9th September. All rehearsals are online using Zoom and last one hour. From Bohemian Rhapsody to Bruckner, from Phantom to Fauré these sessions cover a hugely diverse repertoire. Watch the video below to find out more information. Look forward to seeing you there! Book your sessions below using the three 'BUY NOW' buttons. We will then email you to confirm which sessions you would like to attend.
