Building big sing-along events – David Lawrence
In this lecture, David Lawrence paints a picture of large-scale choral events from the conductor’s viewpoint, including the concerts he conducts for Young Voices and big classical music sing-along events. And he’s one to talk: David holds a Guinness World Record for conducting the UK’s largest choir of 6.846 singers. What does the conductor need to consider in choosing repertoire, gathering resources, and preparing the rehearsals? How do you get from the first idea to the final performance?
