Japan Society Choral Workshop

22 February 2015, London

The Japan Society is delighted to present its first ever choral workshop – a chance for Japanese and anyone with an interest in Japan to meet and sing British and Japanese choral music in a relaxed environment. The workshop will be led by Jonathan Gregory, Director of the UK-Japan Choir and Orchestra and Fellow of the Royal College of Organists.


The event will be suitable for both beginners and more experienced singers. We will start with singing warm ups, including pitching and Japanese counting games, before tackling arrangements of traditional Japanese songs (written phonetically), and three-part British madrigals such as John Dowland’s Come Again, Sweet Love Doth Now Invite.


Preparation will not be necessary, but for anyone who does wish to practice prior to the workshop, music can be sent out on request by email shortly before the event.



£5 per head: all welcome
Booking deadline: Thursday 20 February
