Classic Schubertiad

One of the important aspects of the work of the Bristol Song Recital Series is in education. We want to open up the singing of songs - simple or advanced; classical, theatre, pop and jazz; new and old - to anyone of all ages. 

So our work involves

  • working with young people on writing songs
  • working with adults to provide performance opportunities
  • working with young trained singers in masterclass situations

and much more. 

Writing songs

We can schools and colleges to work with students on conceiving, creating and new songs and works for the same pupils to perform. We tend to work with an adult composer and singer to help build the pieces, but can find a librettist/lyricist too.  

Performance opportunities - 'Schubertiads'

For adults, we can arrange evenings called 'Schubertiads' when we bring together a number of singers and a top-class accompanist in a comfortable, small environment. Each singer performs to the others. The atmosphere is constructive, and proves a great way to find out exactly where you are in your performing progress. The name 'Schubertiad' recalls events in which Schubert introduced his songs to a close circle of friends.


Masterclasses are a superb way to learn more about your singing. We arrange masterclasses with some of the best singing experts from Bristol and around the country, focussing on technique, performance and other details.
