Choral Directions 2017


We are delighted to welcome Nigel Short as guest editor of this year's Choral Directions – the annual choral supplement brought to you by Classical Music and Choir & Organ magazines.

In this issue:

  • Nigel Short: our guest editor discusses the birth of Tenebrae, the importance of communicating with audiences, and how to develop good ensemble skills
  • Previews, premieres & choral highlights: a look at what's coming up in the international choral world over the next 12 months
  • Vocal placing: vocal coach Hilary Llystyn Jones negotiates the politics of who stands where in a choir to explain how strategic positioning of singers can dramatically improve the overall sound
  • Singing retreats: how many choir members know what’s happening with their body when they sing? We head to the Welsh borders for a course exploring vocal awareness and development
  • New Christmas music: as choir conductors start to plan their Christmas repertoire, we pick our favourite new carols and contemporary seasonal pieces
