Welcome to MFC!
MFC – a day of singing with a difference!
Midland Festival Chorus has moved its base over the past 40 years from Shepshed to Leicester, Warwick and most recently to Worcester, where it presented many major large-scale works in the Cathedral.
Over the past few years, MFC has organised a choral workshop or singing day, but with a difference! These one-day events end with an informal performance with soloists, concentrate on getting under the skin of major choral works, learning performance techniques… and having some fun at the same time.
Under the direction of Malcolm Goldring, each workshop provides a stress-free day for singers, whatever their ability, although being able to read music is essential to get the most out of the event. Guidance notes are provided in advance of the day to enable singers to prepare effectively.
Recent Choral Workshops have included Stabat Mater by Pergolesi (in an unusual SATB version), Mozart’s Requiem (but with the rarely-heard piano duet accompaniment by Carl Czerny), Puccini’s Missa di Gloria, Elgar’s The Music Makers, Karl Jenkin’s The Armed Man, and Vivaldi’s Gloria. In November 2017 we shall sing Poulenc’s Gloria. In addition, in September 2017 we will be performing a concert of Vivaldi’s Gloria and Pergolesi’s Magnificat in Pershore Abbey.
