further details of a course for choral singers led by Justin Doyle
13 to 18 October 2019

Our plan is to meet in the evening for supper on Sunday 13 October 2019. Then on the following five days to do a full morning’s work, from 9.30am to 1pm, with a coffee break, take a four-hour lunch break – to rest the voice and explore the city – before putting in another couple of hours of singing from 5pm to 7pm before supper. We will arrange a supper for everyone together on the first and last evenings (not included in the fee for the course), but let the party split into smaller groups on the other four evenings. The course will end with a public performance in the church in the evening of Friday 18 October.

You arrange your own accommodation. There is plenty of choice within a few minutes’ walk of the church. A quick search on Google maps came up with the following by no means exhaustive list:
Residenza Horto Luculliani and Antica Dimora Horti Luculliani
Noblesse Corso 43 www.noblesse
Top Houses Rome
Orsonline 8 and Elite Rome apartments
Residenza Canova Tadolini
Mozart Hotel
Hotel Valadier
BDB Luxury Rooms
Casa Fabbrini

Singers of student age – which we will not define too closely – are invited to apply for full scholarships to Singing in Rome. These places are intended for current, recent or prospective university choral scholars, music students or other singers seriously interested in developing their vocal skills and ensemble musicianship. There will be opportunities to form smaller-scale groups outside the times of the choral sessions. The scholars are exempt from the course fee but pay for their own travel and accommodation costs.
To apply, just email us giving brief details of your singing experience.

The fee for the course is paid in two parts: a deposit of £275 (or the equivalent in euros) on registration and €250 on or before arrival in Rome. The deposit may be credited to another course if you have to withdraw and we are able to allocate your place to another singer. The fee includes payment for the music booklet, which will be sent to you in advance, but not meals, travel or accommodation. To enrol, just email us and include the information listed below, or if we already know it just let us know that you would like to come. We will then let you know if we can give you a place and send you details of how you may pay the deposit.

      o your name
      o address (to send you the music booklet)
      o telephone number(s)
      o preferred email address
      o voice (soprano – mean/mezzo – alto – tenor – baritone – bass)
