Singing Workshop: A Royal Occasion
Saturday 2nd March 2019
2-6pm (registration from 1.30pm)
St Peter’s Church, Black Lion Lane, Hammersmith W6 9BE > >

St George’s Chapel

Join Petros Singers for an afternoon celebrating 400 years’ worth of music written for and performed at the great royal occasions. The workshop will be led by James Vivian who, as one of the few people to have conducted at a major royal ceremonial event in recent years, and certainly the only person to have conducted at two, is uniquely qualified. James will lead singers through a selection of music associated with royal weddings, funerals and coronations including Parry’s I Was Glad and Zadok the Priest by Handel, amongst other favourites.

James Vivian is Director of Music at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle where he conducts the famous choir in its daily liturgical schedule, in addition to performances on television, radio and in concert. Prior to this he was Director of Music at The Temple Church, London, having held the AH Mann Organ Scholarship at King’s College, Cambridge University. As both conductor and organist his discography lists releases on labels including Decca, Sony BMG and Hyperion, while he has also appeared at festivals such as The Lincoln Festival in NYC and the BBC Proms. He continues to be much in demand as a recitalist throughout both Europe and the United States.

£20 (£15 concessions/under 28s)
Includes loan scores and refreshments
