Leicester Philharmonic Choir is on a quest for singers!
Leicester Philharmonic Choir is asking members of the public to find their singing voices and take part in a six-week course ending in a performance- on stage -at De Montfort Hall!
The course begins on September 16th 7-9pm at Wigston College for weekly rehearsals culminating in a grand concert of Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man on November 9th.
Music Director Dr Stephen Bullamore, says it will be a great adventure for singers of all abilities. “We want members of the public, groups of friends, or whole families, to join us for this magnificent opportunity to be a part of this concert. We welcome those who have been in choirs before, but also those looking to try out something new, to step out of your usual routine and be a part of something we think will create a special experience in your life.”
Dr Bullamore says you certainly do not need to be a professional singer to join the performance, and that being in a large choir will support those who might feel anxious about performing on stage. “Singing in a choir is all about teamwork! We would like to see those who have a love of singing or music to join us. Bring your friends or your work colleagues and make the most of this chance to create beautiful music, -and be part of a performance you can invite your friends and family to see.”
The course costs £25 and applicants should be over the age of 18, but other than that, there are no restrictions.
“We know there are some talented and amazing performers in Leicestershire who should grab this opportunity and we can’t wait to welcome you into the Phil to perform with us.”
