2023 Early Release Tickets

As part of the 2023 UKARIA A Cappella Academy, we are delighted to present two public workshops as professional development opportunities for local singers, conductors, teachers, and choral enthusiasts. Both workshops will be directed by members of The Gesualdo Six (2023 Artists-in-Residence). 

Renaissance Music Workshop
Thursday 23 March 2023, 10.30am–1.00pm

The Gesualdo Six, directed by Owain Park, are consistently praised for their imaginative programming and impeccable blend. The ensemble formed in 2014 for a performance of Gesualdo’s Tenebrae Responsories in Cambridge and has gone on to perform at numerous major festivals across the UK, Europe, North America and Australia. 

The ensemble was built upon core Renaissance works, and it is this repertoire that will be explored during this interactive workshop.

Contemporary British A Cappella Workshop
Friday 24 March 2023, 10.30am–1.00pm

As well as directing The Gesualdo Six, Owain Park is active as a composer, conductor, and organist. Owain’s compositions are published by Novello and have been performed internationally by ensembles including the Tallis Scholars and the Aurora Orchestra. He is also composer-in-residence for the London Choral Sinfonia, and was named one of BBC Radio 3’s 31 under 31 Young Stars in 2020. 

This workshop will focus on Owain's compositions to demonstrate and discuss contemporary a cappella techniques.
