Many of you responding to the recent Members’ Survey said that you would welcome more help with choral singing technique and voice development. We have made performance improvement an objective for the current season and have great pleasure in announcing the appointment of Gerry O’Beirne to join our professional team as voice coach this year. Starting after Christmas, he will take small groups during weekly rehearsals and work intensively on specific passages/techniques as agreed with Michael.
Gerry has a wealth of experience as both performer and teacher, encompassing a broad repertoire of musical genres. He has sung with many professional ensembles including the BBC Singers, the Gabrieli Consort and Terry’s London Voices. He will be coming to our rehearsal on Monday 18th November and we very much look forward to introducing him to all of you.
