Clear proof of what can be achieved when high professional standards are applied to amateur music making Henley Standard
Brahms Ein Deutsches Requiem
Come & Sing Workshop
10.30 – 18.15 Saturday 9th Oct 2021, St Mary’s Church, Henley on Thames, RG9 2AU
A chance for singers to get together and experience working on this sublime, humane and uplifting work (even the fiendish fugues.) We invite singers from Oxon, Bucks, Berks and beyond to join us under the brilliant baton of Peter Asprey, superb guest soloists and the supreme talents of HCS and HYC accompanists David Smith and Anita D’Attellis playing four hands, one piano. And if you have always wanted to see what it is like to sing with HCS before you join then what are you waiting for? This will be a great opportunity to try us out in a day of music-making. Score hire available. And there will be cake. Lots of cake.
