New Stoke Choral Course for Young Singers

StokeChoralCourse2

Following on from the success of the Lichfield Choral Course, held at Lichfield Cathedral in August, there will be a new choral course for young singers, this time based in Stoke.

Experienced teachers from Lichfield Cathedral and the Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent Music Education Hub will be heading up the course, which will take place at Stoke Minster on Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th October.

The Stoke Choral Course is open to young people aged between 12 and 18 years. It provides an opportunity to learn how to sing, how to care for your voice, take part in performance workshops, and to perform in a group. Students will receive a 30-minute individual singing lesson, and have the chance to sing in an end-of-course showcase.

Singing in groups has been found to boost confidence, develop team-working skills and can provide a sense of achievement, all of which are clear benefits to both school life and beyond.

Cathy Lamb, Director of Music for Lichfield Cathedral says:

“The Lichfield course went really well. We had a great bunch of singers who were excited to learn, and our end-of-course showcase was probably the best one yet! The Stoke Choral Course is an opportunity for us to reach out to young singers in north Staffordshire, where we can hopefully repeat the success of the Lichfield course. It’s a wonderful opportunity to make friends, develop a skill and have some fun during half-term.”

The course costs £30 per child and registration is required. For more information, contact Cathy Lamb at cathy.lamb@lichfield-cathedral.org or on 01543 306200.
