Colin has agreed to run an optional advance rehearsal day on Sunday 21 July at 2.00pm, also at MCMA to give singers an overview of the works, and to tackle some tricky corners.  Come any time from 12.00, and bring your lunch.


We are planning to issue music copies to singers on 21 July. If you cannot attend, let us know and we will send them out by post to you in July.

If you want to buy Feel the Spirit, we can assist with bulk purchase, price between £8 and £8.30 depending on volume.

If you want to buy I Have a Dream, Max is willing to produce copies and sell them for £8.  Let us know what youwant.


We will also provide some learning materials as midi files to enable singers to work on the parts.  These will be sent to anyone who purchases a copy of “Dream”, otherwise they will be available on 21 July.

If you have any questions, please ask [either email or telephone 0161 287 6207]; others may be asking the same question, so we will put answers here on the website for all to see.

The St Gauderic Music Festival is a charitable organisation committed to the study and performance of classical music, mainly running festivals/concerts in the south of France in and around the village of St Gauderic.  As organisers of events we take no remuneration or personal expenses; it is our privilege to create wonderful music for others to enjoy also.  For this event, it is intended to donate any surpluses after direct costs have been paid to major charities involved in civil rights causes across the world.
