In this workshop amateur singers are invited to join Rob Howarth, OAE keyboard director and a professional soloist, to have a closer look at some of the Passion choruses.
Every Easter, Bach’s Passions are performed up and down the country – as much a part of the musical calendar as Handel’s Messiah.
This is a unique opportunity to get to know some of the choruses better to enrich your listening experience, in the company of OAE principal keyboardist, Robert Howarth. We’ll be taking a closer look at some of the more dramatic choruses, both in terms of their music and context, and also singing them, with a professional soloist taking the role of the Evangelist.
Suitable for all singers – some knowledge of the Passions beneficial, but not essential.
Sessions lasts 3 hours including break.
