Sing it in a Day - Duruflé Requiem
Saturday 8 June 2019 9.30am – 5.30pm
St John's Church, Buxton
After last season’s hugely successful preparation and performance of the Mozart Requiem in a day, we are absolutely delighted to have secured the services of the Hallé Choir’s Director, Matthew Hamilton, to lead us through the Duruflé Requiem for our second Sing it in a Day. There will be rehearsal sessions in the morning and afternoon followed by a late afternoon performance of the work in its arrangement for Organ and 'cello.
Matthew Hamilton is a regular collaborator with leading choirs across a broad repertoire. Choral Director at the Hallé since 2015, he is also Associate Director of London Symphony Chorus, and Musical Director of New London Chamber Choir. As a guest conductor he has appeared with groups including BBC Singers, BBC Symphony Chorus, Choeur de Radio France, ChorWerk Ruhr, CBSO Chorus, National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, and the Chorus of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
