Feral Choir Workshop

Thursday 10th November 2022 , 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Join acclaimed experimental vocalist Phil Minton for a chance to be part of his legendary Feral Choir.

We’ll be running a one hour workshop with Phil, culminating in a short performance later the same evening to be part of the private view for Visions in the Nunnery, Programme 2.

We are inviting people of all ages and abilities who delight in the freedom to experiment and join in, for a fun, improvised vocal experience. Phil will lead the group through several exercises and improvisations, to gradually create a temporary choir of all kinds of voices. Everyone is welcome, and the workshop is suitable for anyone who can breathe. 

“Joyous and jubilant, now I go better on my way”

The Visions Programme 2 private view follows the workshop in the Nunnery Gallery, from 6-9pm. The performance will take place as part of the private view at 7.30pm – please note, in participating in the afternoon workshop we very much hope you will stay on for the evening and take part in the feral choir performance. There will be time to take a break and get something to eat – our Nunnery Café is on site.

About Phil Minton

Phil Minton comes from Torquay in the UK. He played trumpet and sang with the Mike Westbrook Band in the early 1960s, then in dance and rock bands all across Europe. He returned to England in 1971, re-joining Westbrook and was involved in many of his projects until the mid-1980s.

For the last forty years, Phil has been working as an improvising singer in groups, orchestras and situations in various locations worldwide. Some composers have written pieces that especially employ his extended vocal techniques and improvisations. He has a quartet with Veryan Weston, Roger Turner and John Butcher and ongoing duos with all the above. Since the 1980s, his Feral Choir, where he voice-conducts workshops and concerts for anyone who wants to sing, has performed in over 20 countries.
