Rimini International Choral Workshop with Peter Phillips

Location: Italy

The Rimini International Choral Workshop is a week of music-making and learning with Peter Phillips, Ghislaine Morgan (The Tallis Scholars) and other choir conductors in the beautiful and ancient town of Rimini, on the "Riviera Adriatica" in Italy. The workshop is especially dedicated to exploring our great heritage of renaissance choral music, and to developing a performance style appropriate to it, as pioneered by the Tallis Scholars. The course is open to singers aged 16 years and over, and we welcome participants from Italy and abroad. All you need are reasonable sight-singing skills and a passion for a cappella choral music. Lessons will be in Italian and English at the same time.
