WW1 Fallen Project – call out for singers

A wonderful opportunity has opened for aspiring singers to take part in two voice workshops and a scratch performance of FALLEN.

The fun and engaging workshops will cover voice technique and ensemble performance. In addition to learning about how to make the best sound possible, participants will work towards a scratch performance of FALLEN on Saturday 18th October.

The workshops are led by conductor and mezzo soprano Tania Holland Williams and are open to singers aged 16 and over.

There is no requirement to read music. However, to get the most out of the sessions if you don’t read music, we recommend listening to the work beforehand – please email to request links.

There is no requirement to attend both sessions. Please wear warm, comfortable clothing and turn up ready to use your voice and above all have fun!

FALLEN is a new vocal composition based on WW1, composed for film and shortlisted for the “For the Fallen Film Challenge”. You can listen to one section here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qG49UKg3Kug
