Learn compositional skills from Judith Weir CBE

musical notesCalling all classical composers – enhance your compositional skills and learn from Master of the Queen’s Music Judith Weir CBE and conductor Matthew Hamilton at a free Writing for Voices workshop.

Taking place on 12 January at St Paul’s Church in Knightsbridge, the event will allow composers both new and old the chance to expand their skills of music writing and composition.

Judith Weir, Master of the Queen’s Music, will give helpful tips and techniques on notation, score-layout, vocal ranges, text-setting and choral techniques.

She will be joined by conductor Matthew Hamilton and the BBC Singers who will be on-hand to give their thoughts on the best techniques to learn from choral writers.

The workshop will culminate with a short performance of two brand new organ commissions, in association with Choir and Organ Magazine, and four compositions heard at BBC Singers composition workshops this year.

Register for free for the Writing for Voices workshop.
