JAM on the Marsh choral course

This summer JAM is launching JAM on the Marsh, a two-week arts festival on Kent's Romney Marsh. As part of this they are running a eight day choral course (from 12 to 20 July), From Bingen to Bingham. Lead by Nicholas Cleobury and Judith Bingham, the course will feature choral music through the ages performed in the medieval churches of Romney Marsh.

Participants will sing music from Hildegard von Bingen to Judith Bingham via Gibbons, Tallis, Bruckner, Tavener and Gabriel Jackson, whilst learning vocal healthcare and how to protect the voice and get the very best from it. There will be some one-to-one and sectional sessions with the course leaders, professional singers and vocal coaches. The course includes free tickets to All JAM on the Marsh festival events: Rachmaninov's Vespers, Barber's Adagio, Vaughan Williams's Oboe Concerto, Handel's Coronation Anthems and plus a new oboe concerto by Judith Bingham and new work by Giles Swayne.

The closing date is 9 May, further information from the JAM Website,  and there is an on-line application form.
