The Workshop

The Rimini International Choral Workshop (31 August – 6 September 2014) is a week of music-making and learning with Peter Phillips, Ghislaine Morgan and Andrea Angelini 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 we welcome participants from Italy and abroad.
