Course content

Until recently, postgraduate music education has barely explored the connection between the worlds of solo and choral singing. In this unique course led by Robert Hollingworth, a world-leader in the artform, you'll explore the subtleties of this sophisticated genre.

As well as receiving general vocal coaching, you'll work on the specific difficulties faced by singers in a genre that combines both choral precision and solo expression. You'll also be coached by singers from world-famous ensemble, I Fagiolini, and learn to challenge accepted norms about this kind of singing.

You'll explore how audiences receive this repertoire, much of which was not written with public concert performance in mind, and consider how this affects presentation and performance.
