A weekend of glorious harmony singing, fun and laughter. No experience needed – just a love of singing! Ambleside is in the very heart of the Lake District. Brathay Hall, a beautiful Georgian mansion, is set in 360 acres of mature woodland and rolling pasture at the head of Lake Windermere.

We are all familiar with classical choral pieces such as Handel’s Messiah, Faure’s Requiem and Bach’s St Matthew Passion. But there are other wonderful Western classical pieces that will work really well using voices only.

Chris has arranged a selection of fabulous classical works for voice only.

To give you an idea of the kind of songs you will be learning over the weekend, Chris has created a playlist of six classical pieces he is planning to arrange which you can find on YouTube.
