Choral singers wanted for 24-Hour Mozart Requiem in aid of Pimlico Musical Foundation

24 Hour Mozart Requiem
Choral singers invited to take part in a 24-Hour Drop-In performance of Mozart’s Requiem, raising money for local music education charity, Pimlico Musical Foundation. This continuous singathon will start at St. Gabriel's Church, Pimlico at 16:00 on Thursday 22 February 2024 with whoever is there. 

The singers will then work their way through the choruses and solos until they get to the end, at which point the piece will start over again. This will be repeated non-stop for 24 hours until they finish at 15:59 on Friday 23 February 2024. The event will be livestreamed throughout via the Pimlico Musical Foundation’s social media. 

Choral singers of all voice types are invited to sing for any length of time, with a star-studded line up of conductors, including Ralph Alwood, Ben Parry and Suzi Digby.

The Pimlico Musical Foundation (PMF) was set up in 2015 to provide local children from all backgrounds with a top-quality education in choral music, at a time when music provision in schools is under pressure. It works with local schools in a wide variety of ways, and its regular large-scale concerts provide an opportunity for the local community to come together to enjoy music of all kinds.

The event is a collaboration between PMF and Labrador Events, a previous 24-Hour Drop-In Messiah at St George’s Church, Hanover Square in September 2023 raised almost £10,000.

For the £10 sign-up fee, singers will receive professionally produced rehearsal audio tracks for all 4 voice parts as well as a digital score. They then suggest a donation of £5 per hour (or part hour) to attend the Drop-In in aid of Pimlico Musical Foundation. 

Full details from the Labrador Events website.
