Update: Watch the Covent Garden flashmob that took place as part of Festival of Voices.

Dominic Peckham, chorus member of The Royal Opera, conductor, ambassador of choral music and Artistic Director of youth singing group RM19 has been busy. Dominic leads RM19, a singing group for young people aged 11-25 in Thurrock, where the boundaries are banished when it comes to styles of singing. Genres performed range from classical to hip-hop and Dominic ensures the participants have their say when composing and creating material.

With his conducting hat on and baton in hand, Dominic will lead three choral workshops on 'Va, pensiero' in the ROH's Clore Studio this weekend as part of the Deloitte Ignite Festival of Voices. The workshops are for seasoned singers and first timers, who will be introduced to the joys of community singing. The workshops operate on a first-come first-served basis.

Fancy a go? For a sneaky taster you can look at our 'Va, pensiero' resource, but no preparation is required.

Book free tickets for the Deloitte Ignite Festival of Voices on 22 September, and find out about other events during Deloitte Ignite.
