Rimini International Choral Workshop

The Rimini International Choral Workshop from Sunday 21 August to Sunday 28 August is a week of music-making and learning in the beautiful and ancient town of Rimini, on the “Riviera Adriatica” in Italy. The workshop is especially dedicated to exploring our great heritage of renaissance choral music, and to developing a performance style appropriate to it, as pioneered by the Tallis Scholars. The course is open to singers aged 16 years and over, and participants from Italy and abroad are welcomed. All you need are reasonable sight-singing skills and a passion for a cappella choral music. Lessons will be in Italian and English at the same time.
