Details of the day

In this all day choral workshop, led by the celebrated composer and conductor John Rutter, you will be singing choral music to lift the spirits. There will be a mixture of old and new, including some of John Rutter’s own well-loved choral works.

The day will be accompanied on the piano by Julian Savory, a well known local musician, and by Rachel Dent, harpist, who was responsible for John’s first visit to Hull.

If you are arriving by public transport at Paragon Interchange, go to the volunteer hub in the front hall (on the way to the taxi rank), where the staff in blue jackets will point you in the right direction.


£20, including tea/coffee/juice and the hire of all the music you need for the day.

Buying the music

If you decide you would like to keep any of the music:

  • We will have a stall at which you can buy the copy you have hired.
  • If you would like to buy any additional copies, they will be available for collection at the end of the day, as we gather them in at the end of the event. We only have the copies that we have hired available for sale.
  • Please note that we will ONLY BE ABLE TO ACCEPT CASH on this stall, but there are cash machines near the venue. The price list is available here. Please note, we expect to be a little short of 50p pieces, so if you could bear that in mind when assembling the cash you bring, that would be helpful.

John will also be bringing some CDs with him, which will also be for sale on our cash only stall. You can see details at the foot of the music price list here.

These stalls will be open during the breaks and after we have finished singing.

Banks’ Music, who are kindly helping with the costs of this event, will also have a stall.
