Durufle Requiem: Masterclass and Concert

A message from the Royal Free Music Society:

The RFMS will be running a masterclass on Saturday 27th Feb. The masterclass will focus on developing vocal quality and will be based on the Duruflé requiem. For more information and booking: http://royalfreemusicsociety.org.uk/masterclass

In addition, your members would be very welcome to come to our next concert on 19th March when we will be singing the Duruflé requiem (hopefully putting what we have learnt in the masterclass to good use) and our sister orchestra, the Hampstead Sinfonietta will be performing Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture and Scottish Symphony. See http://royalfreemusicsociety.org.uk/next-concert for more information.
