Oriana Arts Inc is hosting their annual choral singing workshop, A Weekend with Graham Abbott on 26 & 27 August at Stella Maris Catholic Primary School, Maroochydore, this year as part of the Horizon Festival’s exciting calendar of events.
Graham Abbott has been Conductor-in-Residence at the Elder Conservatorium of Music Adelaide, Musical Director of Adelaide Philharmonia Chorus, Associate Conductor of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Musical Director of Melbourne Chorale, and Guest Chorus Master for the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
He has conducted all the major Australian orchestras, opera companies and leading choral societies, new music and early music ensembles. A respected music educator, Graham was producer and presenter of the highly successful Keys To Music series on ABC Classic FM from 2003 – 2017.
Music to be workshopped over the weekend includes choruses from Handel’s Messiah, Mendelssohn’s Elijah and a Madrigal. Workshops will be accompanied by Oriana’s Artistic Director and Accompanist, Fay Baker. Links to rehearsal tracks and sheet music will be provided to all those registered to attend.
Costs for the 2-day workshop are $120 per person or $100 per person when booking in a group of 10 or more, so choirs and ensembles are encouraged to gather their members for a memorable weekend of singing.
