Workshop (1): Choral Warmup: Physical and Musical

January 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Choral warmup plays an integral role in the rehearsal and performance process for any choir. It not only prepares singers physically but also mentally and musically for the tasks ahead. While some conductors prefer traditional techniques like breathing exercises and scales, others opt for more creative approaches by incorporating games and activities during the warm up session. 

Our distinguished speaker, Mr. Raymond Fu, is an Associate of the Royal School of Church Music (October 2016) and a well-respected figure within the choral music and church communities. With over 38 opera and musical productions under his belt, Mr. Fu founded the Opera Prima Society of Hong Kong in 2015, promoting opera appreciation and education in the region. His knowledge and expertise provide valuable insight into various warm up techniques and their significance, enabling music teachers and conductors to better engage with their choirs and unlock their full potential.

During the workshop, Mr. Fu will delve into related exercises that could help the singers understand that singing involves not only the vocal cords and breathing system but also the whole body. In addition to helping singers produce effective and healthy singing, musical warm ups can also be great intonation training to the singers. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how these exercises can contribute to their choirs’ growth and help them reach their full potential by finding their unique choral sound.
