Singing Workshop: Bach B Minor Mass
This come-and-sing workshop will be led by David Bates, one of Europe’s most exciting directors of Baroque music. David will work through movements of the Mass, bringing his unique flair for vocal communication, text and musical style. After a break for tea, we will have the opportunity to sing through the pieces we have rehearsed and, at 5.30pm, there will be an informal performance which friends and family of workshop participants are warmly invited to attend.
David Bates is artistic director of La Nuova Musica with whom he performs regularly at the Wigmore Hall, the London Handel Festival and on a string of critically acclaimed recordings. La Nuova Musica made their debut at the BBC Proms in July 2022 with Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas (listen here), following David’s own debut last season directing the Britten Sinfonia. Abroad, he has conducted operas at Komische Oper Berlin, Staatsoper Hannover, Innsbrucker Festwochen, Cincinnati Opera and the Spoleto Festival, while in the UK his credits include Glyndebourne Festival Opera and Iford Arts.
