A Sing Through

Facilitator: Robert Hollingworth

Join Robert Hollingworth and students to experience a wildly eclectic mix of music – from Renaissance Germany to Britten in playful mood, Rheinberger’s serene choral hit Abendlied,  some French jazz and a song about the Inuit winter.

An informal sing through concert showcasing the groups hard work from over their weekend music course.  Friends and family are welcome to come to the concert and stay on for tea and cake afterwards.

*Unfortunately our concert today has been cancelled due to bad weather. Sorry for any inconvenience.


Event time: Sun 9th Feb 2020 at 2:15pm - Sun 9th Feb 2020 at 3:15pm

The repertoire will include most, if not all, of the following

  • Benjamin Britten – Lenten is come
  • Heinrich Schütz – Die Himmel erzählen
  • Josef Rheinberger – Abendlied
  • Leo Ferré – Chanson d’automne (Verlaine)
  • Johannes Brahms – Im Herbst
  • Ed Hughes – Sun, New Moon and Women Shouting (part 1)

Concert Spotlight Events

We warmly invite you to our 2020 season of Concert Spotlight events. In this series at Hawkwood, we invite established and emerging artists to share the pieces they have worked with and practised whilst on their music-making course. Taking place in the intimate setting of Hawkwood, these exclusive informal sharings of work offer audiences the chance to connect with the artists on a personal level in a relaxed setting. During their residential courses, students work towards the informal concert on the last day of the course.

We have an open invitation for everyone, of all ages and all creative interests, to come and join us.
