An amazing weekend full of positive energy, lovely people, a lot of inspiration and beautiful music! Thank you! (Tatyana Danova) Over the course of the final festival weekend, singers of all ages and abilities have the opportunity to work closely with award-winning festival singers. Participants will have the chance to learn a broad spectrum of repertoire from opera classics to jazz improvisation for the Festival Finale.
Our mentors 2016: Ian Shaw - Jazz extraordinaire, opening this year’s festival following gigs at Ronnie Scott’s and the Salzburg Jazz Festival. Described by the Guardian as ‘gifted, technically awesome and theatrically witty’, Ian is a brilliant showman and wonderful pianist and we are delighted to have him as a special guest mentor in 2016. Dominic Harlan - is a phenomenal musician whose gifts for galvanising singers of all ages have been recognised by the national press ‘Harlan is what is known as a ‘born communicator’’ (Telegraph), ‘Dominic Harlan deserves a medal’ (The Times). Dominic is also presenter of our Sunday Family concert with two international singers Robert Gildon - Opera singer, concert artist and leading animateur of groups such as Streetwise Opera (singing projects for homeless people) and of opera companies and orchestras nationwide. Rob’s infectious enthusiasm and fun approach was a huge hit in 2015. Lynsey Docherty - Singer, producer, vocal animateur. Lynsey is the director of Celebrate Voice, and is thrilled to finally be doing what she loves - working with the participants in the Singing Weekend. Having just completed a universally critically acclaimed tour of Offenbach operas, she will be singing Tosca in two shows at this year’s festival and making sweet music with the participants all weekend! Plus other pro singers from the week...
