Come & Sing with Rebecca Lodge
13th July 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
There are several opportunities to ‘Come &…’ in this year’s festival, including this chance to work with a wonderful, local and hugely experienced singer and educator, Rebecca Lodge.
Rebecca has been a permanent member of the Royal Opera House Chorus since 2017, before which she was a member of the BBC Singers – the UK’s only fulltime chamber choir – for many years. She had many solos with the group including Durufle Requiem, Rachmaninoff Vespers and Strauss’ Deutsch Motette, all broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 and tv, and Scarlatti’s Stabat Mater at the Proms.
Rebecca’s performance life is equalled by her work in education, where she inspires people of all ages and abilities to improve their singing. In this way she has worked with the likes of the BBC and the King’s Singers. Her take on Come & Sing is a little different from others, as you do not need to have any experience or be able to read music, you simply need to have a little joie de vivre and the wish to learn and have fun with singing. You will prepare an opera chorus, sing a show-tune or two and have a crack at some choral music.
Rebecca leads Tempo, Cranbrook’s Community Choir and is conductor of the Intermediate Choir at Finchley Children’s Music Group, with whom she appeared at the Southbank’s Quenn Elizabeth Hall earlier this year.
