Discover the joy of singing in small ensembles. A class devoted to singing duets, trios and quartets, learning how to sustain your vocal line against other parts, how to blend with other voices and how to create a well-communicated ensemble performance of style and variety.
You will be singing with your peers, rehearsing your repertoire and being coached on ensemble, style and communication. You will be listening to colleagues’ performances and engaging in class discussion.
This is a class for advanced students with at least four years of classical singing tuition. You should be able to sing in tune, have a good sense of timing and be able to follow a music score.
You will need to bring a piece of solo repertoire to perform in week one to enable the tutor to allocate an ensemble to you. From week two you will engage in group work on the ensemble you’ve been given. You may bring music for any duet, trio or quartet you’d like to work on.
You will need to bring copies of any ensemble you are working on and any preferred equipment for taking notes e.g. a recording device, notebook and pen.
You can enrol on other courses for more advanced students such as Solo Singing Intermediate to Advanced, Solo Singing Advanced or one of the singing masterclasses in Lieder, French Song or Oratorio. If you wish to continue working on ensembles you may like to audition for the Morley Opera Course.
