Singing Development Day with Jack Apperley

Sevenoaks Philharmonic Choir warmly invites all singers to join us for a singing development day with the lively and charismatic conductor, Jack Apperley.

We will use Brahms Requiem as the vehicle for this event but improving voice production and ensemble singing will be the aim of the day as much as improving understanding of the work.

We are delighted to welcome back Jack Apperley to lead our 2024 Singing Development Day. Those who attended our Verdi Requiem Singing Day in June 2023 will know that Jack is an energetic and fun-loving freelance conductor. He is making his name in the field of choir development and we promise you a lively and enjoyable day.

He is Music Director of Goldsmiths Choral Union and a former Assistant Chorus Director of the London Symphony Chorus where he helped prepare the chorus for conductors including Sir Simon Rattle, Sir Antonio Pappano and John Adams.

He is in demand as a guest conductor with ensembles including the Hungarian National Choir and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. He is also working with the Berlin Radio Choir in their International Masterclass Series

Bonus Invitation

Sevenoaks Phil is performing Brahms Requiem with Sevenoaks Philharmonic Orchestra and professional soloists at Pamoja Concert Hall, Sevenoaks on Saturday 23rd March 2024.

As a participant in this workshop you are invited to join us for this performance – we ask just that you attend at least two of our regular Tuesday evening rehearsals, though you will be welcome to attend as many more as you like.

We hope that you will enjoy performing this big choral work which may not often be possible for individual singers or members of smaller choirs – do, please, tell your singing friends and encourage them along too!
