Petros Singers: Singing workshop
March 2 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Singing Workshop: A Royal Occasion
Led by James Vivian, Director of Music at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle
Join Petros Singers for an afternoon celebrating 400 years’ worth of music written for and performed at the great royal occasions. The workshop will be led by James Vivian who, as one of the few people to have conducted at a major royal ceremonial event in recent years, and certainly the only person to have conducted at two, is uniquely qualified. James will lead singers through a selection of music associated with royal weddings, funerals and coronations including Parry’s I Was Glad and Handel’s Zadok the Priest, amongst other favourites.
James Vivian is Director of Music at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle where he conducts the famous choir in its
daily liturgical schedule, in addition to performances on television, radio and in concert. Prior to this he was Director
of Music at The Temple Church, London, having held the AH Mann Organ Scholarship at King’s College, Cambridge.
As both conductor and organist he has released recordings on many labels including Decca, Sony BMG and Hyperion.
He has also appeared at festivals such as The Lincoln Festival in NYC and the BBC Proms. He continues to be much in demand as a recitalist throughout Europe and the United States.
Richard Bannan, our musical director, is a baritone, conductor and arranger. He sings with many of the country’s leading vocal ensembles, including the Choir of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
