For just £35/£45 you will have an amazing experience of one masterclass, chorus workshop and the opportunity to sing in the final performance of Dixit Dominus.

Please note the final selection for each section in the performance will be selected on the day by Julian Perkins and we expect each masterclass attendee to come note-ready for their selected section.

If you just want to come along and see the results of a hard day’s rehearsing, you’re very welcome, and it only costs a fiver!

The performance will be starting at 5:30pm and should be finished before 7.

Audience – performance only: £5



Scores will be supplied; we’re using the Bahrenreiter edition. Feel free to bring your own, but be aware that there may be differences if you’re using anything other than Bahrenreiter.


Tea and coffee will be available at the morning and afternoon breaks and lunch will be provided. If you have any allergies please be aware that we cannot guarantee the food is nut or gluten free and if this is of concern you may wish to make alternative arrangements.

Ability Level

For the chorus parts, you only need to be able to read fairly well and/or are familiar with the piece.

The workshops are aimed at both established and aspiring soloists; it is strongly advised that you “know the notes” before coming as you will get far more from Julian’s tuition.
