 Antico Borgo la Torre

We are offering a SINGING HOLIDAY at Antico Borgo La Torre on 19 - 25 June 2022, with the highly acclaimed conductor Amy Bebbington.

 

This holiday is specifically designed for those who love to sing choral music! It balances concentrated mornings full of wonderful ensemble music making, alongside the opportunity to have some 1:1 vocal (or choral leadership) coaching in the afternoons. The repertoire will feature an enjoyably broad mix of styles from all periods, catering to a variety of tastes.

 

This inclusive singing holiday will allow you to develop your vocal potential and to discover new repertoire.

 

This is all set within our tranquil Tuscan farmhouse, while enjoying the wonderful Tuscan cuisine in the company of fellow singers. On the last day, you’ll be able to take part in an informal public choir performance.

 

 

 

This singing holiday is for a group of 15-20 people.

 

Rate: €1120 per person (in a shared twin bedroom).
