Saturday 29th August to Saturday 5th September
Want to sing whilst enjoying the beauty of Rome? Then this trip is for you!
For a week you will become part of the Hidden Gems Choir, singing every day in a relaxed, friendly environment.
You will be trained by our inspiring vocal coaches, Jeremy Avis and Rebecca Askew, who have both performed worldwide. Their approach is inclusive and fun and between them they have many years of experience of creating memorable musical occasions for all ages and abilities.
You will also be in one of the amazing cities in the world - Rome! The Coliseum, the Vatican, the Trevi fountain, the Pantheon, the Sistine Chapel will all be close at hand, but the rich history of the city will really come alive for you during the three unique tours of some of Rome's "hidden gems" led by our expert local guide, Olivia Ercoli.
You will learn an exciting and varied mix of songs, hand-picked and arranged especially by Rebecca and Jeremy to be fun yet challenging and to suit a variety of tastes from jazz standards to Italian madrigals. The repertoire also features original compositions by our two talented tutors. All music is taught by ear, so you don't have to be able to read music or have any previous experience.
You will have an amazing time - meeting new people, singing new songs and seeing new places, and our wonderful tour

Despite not being a "hidden" gem, in 2019 Jeremy and Rebecca specially composed a new piece called "Oculus" to celebrate the amazing architecture of the Pantheon, which had struck them both so much as teenagers. The Hidden Gems choir 2019 sang it at The Pantheon on their final evening.
A different stunning location will be chosen for 2020, where will it be?!
