Discover Masterclasses

Join us this year for our Discover series! We will bring you music from the great choral masters, allowing you to explore the history behind the works, what inspired the composers and the chance to sing excerpts from the scores. All this under the guidance of a skilled group of workshop leaders who specialize in choral music. Each workshop leader has been selected based on their experience with particular composers and will bring a wealth of knowledge, enthusiasm and expertise to the workshop.

This year the workshops take place on Sunday mornings in our rehearsal space at Pier 4, Hickson Road, Millers Point. Pier 4 is located in Walsh Bay on Sydney Harbour. The venue is surrounded by cafes and restaurants perfect for post workshop coffee or lunch, including Fratelli Fresh, Sydney Dance Cafe and Sydney Theatre Bar– all with a stunning outlook on Sydney Harbour. Each masterclass will run for two hours.

Sunday mornings, 10am-12pm
