Stay and Sing is a new online choral initiative designed to keep singers connected, and to help them scratch that choral itch whilst meeting in person isn't possible. Like a regular Come and Sing, we draw together singers from different communities, and let them explore some of the most popular choral works, all from the comfort of their settees!
Our first Stay and Sing, held on 4 April 2020, featured Mozart's Coronation Mass, when 160 singers from around Europe joined us. Our next session focussed on two of Handel's beloved Coronation Anthems, Zadok the Priest and Let Thy Hand Be Strengthened, and our third event, sticking with the coronation anthem theme, concentrated on the uplifting, rousing I Was Glad by Parry, paired with Handel's Hallelujah Chorus and Parry's Jerusalem.
Thanks to popular demand, we can now announce that our fourth Stay and Sing, to take place on Saturday 6 June 2pm-4.15pm, will showcase the joyous Vivaldi Gloria, in a slightly truncated form.
After a physical and vocal warm up, we'll be learning, rehearsing and finally singing the music all the way through, and through the magic of technology, you'll be able to hear and see all you need. We're now sold out, but if you would like to receive details of future projects, please subscribe below.
