    Calling All Choral Singers..

    Join Members of Benson Choral Society in an exploration of Fauré's Requiem, one of the most rewarding pieces to sing in the whole choral repertoire. The workshop will be led by Jonathon Cole-Swinard, Head of Music and Chorus Director of Garsington Opera. Jonathon is currently also acting MD of Benson Choral Society and is an extraordinarily exciting and dynamic conductor to sing under. Our wonderful pianist, Anita D'Attellis will be accompanying us. This is an exeptional opportunity to understand Fauré's famous work more deeply and to take part in a thrilling scratch performance of it.
