Summer School 2018

July 2018

Our Summer School¬†for 2018 will culminate once more in a concert in the Frome Festival, a single work: Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem.

You probably already know about, an online resource to help in the learning of choral parts.

We will be singing the Brahms in German, which brings an additional challenge! So if you want to get ahead of the game [recommended!] click here for a pronunciation guide.

There are plenty of recordings available, but my favourite is Simon Rattle with the Berlin Philharmonic and the Rundfunkchor (chorusmaster: Simon Halsey). Here is a short video of Simon Rattle talking about the Requiem.

Rehearsals are on the weekends 22-24 June and 6-7 July, with the concert in Holy Trinity Frome on Sunday 8 July. We are fortunate to be able to rehearse in the beautiful Bowerman Hall at Monkton Senior School. Monkton is just three miles to the south of Bath, and boasts a lovely pub, The Wheelwrights Arms, which is perfect for lunch!
