Choral Master Class with Paul Phoenix

Girls from the Senior School Chamber Choir and choral group Mundissimae Voces were delighted to welcome Paul Phoenix in to School this week. Paul hosted a series of workshops with the girls which focused on stylistic interpretation of music in different styles, singing projection techniques, producing the appropriate sound colour and balance in acappella singing.

Paul said “I am delighted to share my experiences of performing and I am really grateful to the girls today for sharing their talents with me!”

Paul has been singing since he was a boy chorister in the choir at St Paul’s Cathedral. He studied at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and went on to work as a freelance singer and vocal coach. Paul was appointed to The King’s Singers in 1997 and remained there until his retirement this year.

Paul has since founded Purple Vocals, providing a range of vocal and ensemble coaching services.
