WARWICK – A Singing Town welcomed over 50 enthusiastic singers to a workshop rehearsal and performance of excerpts from Handel’s Messiah.
Through its partnership with local schools, Warwick – A Singing Town’s Choral Entrepreneurs is working with local children to stimulate an interest in singing and hopefully a lifelong love of music.
Supporting events and concerts at schools and through partner organisations, the project will promote not only an opportunity to sing, but also the positive benefits of singing, happiness, health and a harmonious environment.
Accompanied by an orchestra made up of professional players and gifted students, the Messiah event was conducted by choral entrepreneur Mariana Rosas.
Mariana, who is from Argentina and recently completed the postgraduate choral conducting course at the University of Birmingham, was thrilled by the response of the singers and musicians.
She said: “It just shows how important singing is to a community and how much we have missed being able to sing together for the last 18 months. I felt very proud to conduct this lovely group of musicians and was so pleased to be part of a project that can bring people together in such a warm and positive way’.
