Will Dawes Chorus Master

Here is your chance to join Ludus Baroque in a rare performance of Handel’s epic masterpiece, Athalia.

This summer, in partnership with Horsecross Voices, we are running special Athalia choral workshops in July, which will culminate in a performance at St John’s Kirk on Wednesday 6 August. The workshops will be led by Ludus’ Chorus Master Will Dawes and Horsecross’ own James Waters. As well as learning the music, the workshops will focus on choral singing skills including Baroque articulation, pitch and phrasing.
