Come and Sing – Virtual Fauré Requiem

Support Enfield Choral Society supporting musicians!

Project aims:

  • To support freelance musicians whose careers have been so devastated during the pandemic by employing four professional singers and a small professional orchestra;
  • To provide an opportunity for our own choir members and other choral singers as a testament to the difficulties we’ve faced and the ways we’ve overcome them during the pandemic;
  • To commemorate the many people around the world who have lost their lives due to Covid-19.

Enfield Choral Society is a non-auditioned north London choir that aims to maintain high standards.  Our previous virtual concert (Christmas 2020) is still available at https://youtu.be/qeINgSDIjbY  

The ‘Come and Sing’ deal:

  • Three virtual Zoom rehearsals – Tuesdays 1st , 8th and 22nd June 2021, 7.30pm-9pm.  A recording of each rehearsal will be available for any participants unable to attend;
  • Guide tracks sung by professional singers and full instructions for contributing audio to the virtual recording. We will cover two movements in each rehearsal, and you’ll have the following two weeks to submit audio for those movements;
  • Opportunity to contribute video for the virtual concert;   
  • Live rehearsal participation via Jamulus if enough people are interested;
  • The final video will be premiered on YouTube on Saturday 17th July 2021.
