Writing Music for Choirs - Bob Chilcott is passionate about enabling choral singing, and divides most of his time between composing and conducting choral music. Today he talks about the importance of text, vocal line, musical appeal, and a little about how his time as a chorister and later a member of the King’s Singers has influenced the music he writes today.
Open Rehearsal with Pennsylvania Collegiate Choir and Bob Chilcott - As the Pennsylvania Collegiate Choir prepares to perform The Marvellous Birth by Bob Chilcott, the composer joins them to conduct a final rehearsal.
Open Sing with Bob Chilcott - Explore a selection of new choral pieces with composer and conductor Bob Chilcott, and experience some of his newest publications and old favourites.
