Congratulations to Patrick Donnelly (Form V) who has gained a place on the prestigious Eton Choral Course. The Eton Choral Courses are week-long, residential summer courses for singers aged 16-20, which provide intensive, fun weeks of training in singing and choral music. The main focus of each course is the choir, which prepares for two or three main performances with the Course Director and a guest conductor.
Patrick will have the opportunity to perform Choral Evensong in Magdalen College, Oxford and partake in vocal masterclasses with Toby Spence and Ben Parry. Students will receive individual singing lessons from experienced specialists of the developing voice. There are also sessions in sight-reading, aural tests and performance, alongside the vocal master-classes, consort workshops and sessions with visiting guest conductors. The week will end with a recital at Eton College and a recording for BBC Radio 3.
