About the course

Work with industry experts to hone your skills in this refined genre.

Until recently, postgraduate music education has barely touched on the connection between solo and choral singing. In this unique course led by Robert Hollingworth, director of innovative solo-voice ensemble I Fagiolini, you'll explore the intricacies of this sophisticated genre.

You'll explore how audiences receive this repertoire, much of which was not written with public concert performance in mind, and consider how this affects presentation and performance.

Vocal tuition

You'll receive 30 hours of tuition from one of our teachers; Alexander Ashworth, Yvonne Seymour or Susan Young.

Entry Requirements

2:1 or equivalent in Music or another relevant discipline. We will also consider your application if you have a 2:2 honours degree and relevant professional experience.

Ensembles can be any size depending on your interests, but groups are generally made up of 4-8 singers.

The course is aimed at ensembles, and therefore you need to be part of a balanced group of voices that work together as an ensemble through the year.

If you're applying as an individual, we will match you to other candidates.
