Sing Along Concert in Barcelona with David Lawrence this weekend
It will be a dream come true for many of them: The sought-after Sing Along Concert Barcelona 2022 will finally become reality this weekend. After 3 days of rehearsals all participants will come on stage to perform Mozart’s Requiem together with the renowned choir Orfeó Català and the Orquestra Simfònica del Vallès in one of the most beautiful concert halls in the world – the Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona.
The conductor of this distinctive event is David Lawrence, who is widely regarded as one of the UK's most versatile conductors. He was nominated for a Gramophone Award for his conducting, has recently been awarded a prestigious ARAM by the Royal Academy of Music, and holds the Guinness World Record for conducting the UK's largest choir of 6,846 singers.
On Friday, September 2 the participants will meet their conductor for the first time and start to work with him on the piece, before they will be joined by the soloists Maria Pujades Sequì (Soprano), Eulàlia Fantova (Alto), Albert Deprius (Tenor), and Ferran Albrich (Baritone) as well as the Choir and the Orchestra for the first Tutti Rehearsal on Saturday.
On Sunday, September 4 the final day has arrived: All participants will come together in the Palau de la Musica Catalana and perform Mozart’s Requiem in the final concert in an atmosphere full of passion and engagement. The participants will definitely enjoy singing for themselves, for each other and for the audience in the concert hall.
We wish all singers safe travels, successful and enriching rehearsals and a fantastic weekend in the breathtaking city of Barcelona!
