DYC Singers is going online for September 2020!
Due to the uncertainty regarding restrictions on group singing, DYC Singers will undertake weekly online rehearsals from September to December 2020. Singers will learn new music and develop their musicianship while getting to know other musicians. Throughout the term, members will work with visiting specialists on three different projects: understanding vocal science; contemporary score analysis; and critical listening and choral adjudication. Depending on health guidelines, social activities will also be arranged.
Rehearsals will take place online on Thursdays from 7.45-9.30pm
to arrange an online audition
