If you love singing and would like to understand a little more about how to sing well and read your score, then the Hallé Choral Academy might be just what you are looking for.

Everyone (aged 18+) is welcome to join the Choral Academy – no auditions or prior experience are required. Please note, places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.

Starting from Monday 28 September 2020, weekly sessions on Monday evenings will cover all aspects of choral singing including vocal technique, reading music and singing as an ensemble.

We envisage that sessions will have to be held online initially, but we hope to move to more ‘normal’ small socially-distanced group sessions when Government regulations allow. The Academy has held a successful summer term of online sessions via Zoom, a popular and secure invite-only encrypted video communication tool, which is free to use.

When practical sessions can start, they will be held at Hallé St. Peter’s in Ancoats, Manchester. It is close to Manchester City Centre and accessible by public transport.

The weekly sessions will concentrate on all aspects of choral singing, with a particular focus on learning to read music with confidence and sing healthily and well. Later in the season there may be the opportunity to perform with the Orchestra at The Bridgewater Hall.

Participation costs just £225 for the whole project, payable in three instalments of £75 in September 2019, January 2020 and April 2020, if preferred. Further details regarding the sessions and payments will be sent before September.
