Working with national leader in choral singing, Dominic Ellis-Peckham, male singers (trebles, tenors and basses) will be trained in how to harness their individual sound, particularly during the natural transition of the male voice. They will participate in small group singing sessions in range groups with professional singing coaches and then come together to rehearse a selection of music, culminating in a sharing session with parents/carers at the end of the day.
