Dominic Peckham, Artistic Director of The Royal Opera House’s ‘RM19’ Youth Chorus, and regarded as one of the UK’s finest young conductors and an ambassador of choral music both in performance, will lead in three choral workshops in the Clore Studio with his team. The workshops are for both seasoned singers and for first timers, who will be introduced to the joys of community singing. The workshops culminate in a special event at 4pm in Covent Garden Piazza.
12noon – 4pm
If you missed the Elspeth Brooke installation in the Crush Room, take a moment to enjoy her imaginative response to ‘Va pensiero’ as it returns for the Deloitte Ignite Festival of Voices.
Covent Garden Piazza
Fresh from the success of leading over 28,000 people in a Tosca sing-along at the BP Big Screens, Dominic brings together choral groups, first time singers and workshop attendees in a huge celebration of the human voice. Featuring the BBC Symphony Chorus and topped by the fantastic sound of the Brass Section from the BBC Concert Orchestra this event should not be missed.
