The Cambridge Choral Experience are running a fantastic singing weekend in Cambridge run by Ben Parry (director of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain) and Simon Toyne, of the Eton Choral Courses. These courses are specifically for students from non fee-paying schools and will be free of charge.

Many of you may not have even thought about your future plans but this weekend is designed expose you to lots of high-quality singing as well as getting a tour around some Cambridge Colleges and meeting lots of new people too.

This event is free and given the quality of training you will get on this day, I strongly advise you apply and go for it.

The link to the flyer is here; please see me if you would like some paper copies - I have a limited number. 

Go for it and please let me know if you get a place.

Saturday 18 June 2016: Boys and girls in Years 7-11
Sunday 19 June 2016: Boys and girls in Years 12 and 13
Teachers and choir leaders are warmly invited to attend on both days.
The Cambridge Choral Experience is designed to give pupils and teachers a chance to sample the rich choral culture that has been a feature of Cambridge life since the University’s foundation. Cambridge boasts over two dozen colleges with high-quality choirs, and singing in a college choir is not restricted to music students. For students of any subject, singing can represent and important and enriching part of life here.
Each day will involve


  • full choir singing
  • small-group sectionals
  • a workshop on singing technique and vocal health
  • a tour of colleges
  • a chance to meet current Cambridge choral scholars; and hear them perform
  • a chance to find out more about opportunities to sing at Cambridge, and choral scholarships
  • a final sing-through in one of Cambridge’s iconic chapels


The choral days will be led by Simon Toyne (Saturday) and Ben Parry (Sunday), both of them leaders in the field of choral music and education.
