This year the Michelmas Singers, based on Teesside, are celebrating their 50th anniversary. We are joining with them in a celebratory concert which features the rarely-heard 40-part motet by Thomas Tallis – Spem in alium.

It’s a big project to learn this work, which we will be singing one or two voices to a part, and to put the two choirs together. The journey begins with a one-day workshop on Saturday 2 September at St John’s Church Sharow Ripon. If you would like to join us for the day, you will be very welcome. The workshop will last from 10-4. Tea and coffee is provided and we ask everyone to bring something for a bring-and-share lunch. The fee is £15  for the day.

The workshop will be directed by our conductor, Sam Gardner. For further information, please email, or call 01677 450566.
