Genesis Sixteen Conducting Scholarship

Tagged , , , ,

Artistic Director of Reverie, Robbie Jacobs, has been awarded the Genesis Foundation’s inaugural conducting scholarship to work with the Genesis Sixteen Choir. Several members of Reverie, including alto Nancy Cole, tenors James Way and Ben Clark, and bass Angus McPhee are products of the first ever Genesis Sixteen project, which has seen their careers in ensemble music blossom through experiences and opportunities provided by the project.

Robbie is extremely excited about the opportunity to work on the prestigious project, to study conducting Harry Christophers , the founder and director of The Sixteen, and Associate Conductor, Eamonn Dougan, and to work with the new cohort of singers in the Genesis Sixteen project.

Genesis Sixteen was set up in 2011 to provide choral training to exciting young singers taking their initial steps in to the professional work, and sessions with the conductors focus on performance and communication skills, voice production, breathing technique, ensemble, tuning, sight reading and vocal blend.
