Vocal Masterclass - St Mary’s Open Day

It is with great regret that the organisers have taken the decision to postpone the Vocal Masterclass on 21st March, due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. We very much hope to be able to run this at some future time.


Following the success of the recent Open Day, we have scheduled a series over the next few months. Following the great success of last year’s vocal masterclass at St Mary’s, which saw over 170 people attending to watch RCM Professor Alison Wells work with 8 talented singers most of whom were at the start of their professional careers,  we are delighted that the event is happening again on 21st March.

Alison will recruit 8 singers to be put through their paces in front of an audience in St Mary’s. The timings are: 11-1 and 1.30-3.30pm.

Entry is free, but we welcome donations and there will be refreshments available. All proceeds will go to Parish funds.  Do come and see what an interesting and informative experience it is to see how singers at this level work and how they can be given tips to improve in even a short time.  As one member of the audience put it last year “I thought they were all brilliant anyway, but then the level of performance really rose after their 30 mins work with Alison”.
