Mass School Choir Masterclass

Mass School Choir Masterclass is the perfect opportunity for schools that simply want students to experience choral music without the pressure of competition. This Masterclass invites local and international choral experts to lead the participating choirs through warm-up exercises and learning new songs as a group. Participants will be grouped into one of three sessions based on their age to ensure that content will be level-appropriate and targeted to their abilities. 

The masterclass is open to not only school choirs, but also other children and youth choirs and music teachers from the community. Music teachers who want to enrich their choir rehearsals will benefit from observing how experts conduct choirs in the masterclass.
