Dartford Township Choir - Voice workshops 2011 - 2018

with Miriam Crozier

2017 - Sing Mozart

This year‘s programme included the Dies Irae from Mozart’s famous Requiem. learning the

backing chorus part to the Laudate Dominum, to be sung by a soprano soloist as well as the

beautiful Ave Verum.

There was also fun with a work called Mozartissimo, a light hearted romp through his most

famous melodies, telling his life story.  The 11th October,workshop included an informal concert.

2016 - Sing Classical

The work this year was Faure’s Requiem, a beautiful and inspiring work, which once again ended with a performance before an invited audience of friends and family.VM

2015 - Sing Vivaldi

The 2015 workshops once again ended with an informal performance before an invited audience. Developing further from last year, choir members were set the challenge of singing a difficult classical piece from a score.  The Gloria is among the most renowned compositions by Antonio Vivaldi.  The score sets to music the hymn Gloria in excelsis Deo that, according to Luke’s Gospel, angels declaimed to announce the birth of Christ.

2014 - The Big Sing

The 2014 workshops included ‘Do You Hear the People Sing’ from Les Miserables, ‘Getting to Know You’ from The King and I, the ‘Humming Chorus’  from Madame Butterfly and the

‘Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves from Nabucco.  All of these and more were the vehicle for extending musical and vocal skills and the workshops ended with an impromptu performance before a group of invited friends and family.

2013 - Sing with Confidence

Miriam Crozier led this series of workshops with the goal being to have fun while extending

musical knowledge and vocal skills.  Miriam used several pieces as a vehicle to coach workshop members in harmonies, using a score, geography of music etc. whilst having an enjoyable sing!  This proved to be a musical treat for singers at every level of musical expertise!

2012 - Finding Your Voice

These enjoyable workshops were undertaken by some 40 members of Dartford Township Choir under the expert guidance of Miriam Crozier.  Miriam's expertise and experience showed throughout as she took members through a series of innovative and enjoyable exercises to boost confidence and experiment with vocal techniques.

2011 - Develop Your Voice

This was held on was a wonderful opportunity to participate in a one off workshop with Miriam Crozier a very talented musical director and a singer herself. Miriam promised that this session would primarily be FUN and an opportunity for a group of us to get together to see what sort of sound we could make.  No singing alone or pointing out any individuals!  She used a number of techniques and practice methods to enable those participating to stretch their voices and find hidden talents!!!

2018 - A Night at the Opera

As the informal concerts had been so popular in previous years, it was decided to make the final workshop into a more formal event similar to our other projects.  This proved to be a boost to all those taking part and the concert was a great success enjoyed by choir and audience alike.

The programme was quite challenging, including arias from Bizet’s Carmen, Mozart’s This Jingles so Softly and Puccini’s Madam Butterfly and Turandot which gave us Nessun Dorma as a rousing finale.  

We were very fortunate to have the very fine soprano soloist Naomi Quant who treated us to some fine dramatic singing in Queen of the Night from Mozart’s The Magic Flute.
