An open invitation from soprano Josie Walledge: Evening workshop & recital with 'Schola Cantorum' Topsham St Margaret's Tuesday 11 September

I would like to invite you to a Choral Workshop and Recital at 7.30pm on Tuesday 11th September at St Margaret’s Church in Topsham.

James Burton
Choral Director of 'Schola Cantorum'
An evening of fun and vocal gymnastics with dynamic choral director, James Burton, and Oxford University’s ‘classy intercollegiate choir’ Schola Cantorum. Whether you are a singer, a conductor or just passionate about choral music, this evening is guaranteed to educate, energise and entertain!

Come and learn more about vocal technique, choral singing and directing, then sit back and relax with a glass of wine as Schola perform choral masterpieces from their South West tour.

I sang with Schola for many years, most recently with Jamie, who is one of the most exciting and inspiring choral directors in the business. He is an expert in vocal technique and choral conducting, a great communicator and brings huge passion and energy to his rehearsals and concerts.

Schola Cantorum of Oxford ( was founded in 1960 by the Hungarian dissident, László Heltay. The choir has an impressive history of concerts, recordings and broadcasts, and has also built up an international reputation through tours and competitions in Europe, the Far East, Latin America and the Holy Land. The choir has recently featured in John Bridcut’s BBC4 film biographies of the composers Vaughan Williams, Elgar and Parry.

Tickets cost £10 (including refreshments) and there are discounts for groups of 10 or more. I do hope you can come for an evening guaranteed to “educate, energise and entertain”!

Best wishes


PS I am also helping to organise home stays for the students. If you could accommodate one or two students on the night of 11th/12th September, I would love to hear from you!
