OUR VENUE

We will be singing within the resonant portals of Bath's majestic Victoria Art Gallery. The building was designed by John McKean Brydon in 1897 and is a grade 2 listed building. It has numerous imposing and architecturally interesting spaces with high-vaulted ceilings.

We will be looking at how to use this lovely space to organise the choral singing layouts in ways that minimises physical proximity while maximising fraternity.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

There will be six rousing singing sessions spread over the weekend with refreshments provided during the breaks.

 

There will also be a unique Hidden Gems walking tour, an al fresco performance as well as time for exploring Bath's Georgian splendour.

Using styles of singing that carry well but uses low rates of breath-flow, we will also sing Rebecca and Jeremy’s catchy compositions.
