About this event

Sing extracts from Bach's St Matthew Passion in this practical introduction to tonight's Prom. Together with Adey Grummet and the full BBC Singers, you'll have the chance to explore the various compositional devices used by Bach in this complex emotional and dramatic work. This workshop is open to ages 16-plus. A knowledge of the piece is an advantage and secure score-reading recommended for this workshop.

The Royal College of Music is just opposite the Royal Albert Hall – so when the workshop is finished you can make your way to the concert to hear the music you’ve just been singing performed in full. For details about booking Proms tickets click here.
