SING WITH MADDY PRIOR & THE CARNIVAL BAND
The Carnival Choirs are back! Once again we invite you to take part in a workshop, help yourself to our on-line materials and sing in concert with Maddy and the Carnival Band in a top-class venue with full PA and an adoring audience as part of our Carols and Capers tour.
This year we have 2 exclusive venues: Cadogan Hall in London, and Birmingham Town Hall.
Choir rehearsal aids are now available
On-line support. Choir members will be given links to mp3 sound files for each voice part and sheet music from October. Music booklets will be provided at the workshops.
At the workshop Andy Watts will teach all the music for 5 or 6 items which will be included in the concert.
Optional Zoom sessions will be available between the workshop and the concert for anyone who would like some extra help.
On the day of the concert each choir will rehearse with Maddy and The Carnival Band. When not performing, the choir will enjoy the concert from specially reserved seats in the auditorium.
Cost of combined workshop and concert ticket – £60 (under 25s £40). Choir members are required to attend the workshop linked to their concert and to attend the whole of the workshop day. They must be at the venue by 5 pm on the concert day. Workshop only tickets are not available.
Number of places available. There will be between 30 and 50 singers in each choir, and to balance the choir we restrict the number of singers to each part (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). If there are not enough singers to form a choir, a full refund will be given. If a choir is oversubscribed (as in previous years) we keep a waiting list in case of cancellations.
