Sing Faure's Requiem with Sonoro and raise money for Cancer Research UK

Sonoro, Requiem for Cancer, Faure Requiem
The singers from Sonoro are coming together online for a project to raise funds for Cancer Research UK in partnership with Requiem to Cancer. From 28 February to 21 March the choir is hosting a series of on-line workshops devoted to Faure's Requiem which culminate in an online performance of the work on Good Friday which will feature participants alongside Sonoro’s professional singers, as well as baritone Matthew Brook, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra Junior Chorus singing ‘Pie Jesu’, together with Wimbledon Choral Society, The Dionysus Ensemble, and Fauré’s organ at L’eglise de la Madeleine, Paris where the piece was first performed.

Over four Sunday afternoons, singers will take part in online workshops under the direction of Sonoro co-artistic director and conductor Neil Ferris, and each week they will be joined by guest speakers including Sofi Jeannin, director of La Maîtrise de Radio France and chief conductor of the BBC Singers.
