Celebrating Songs Of The Nations

The Rugby Football Union co-sponsored community workshops during October 2015 where participants learnt and sang songs from all the
countries taking part in the Rugby World Cup. The workshops were part of a three-week Music and Drama Festival in Richmond for the local community and visitors to the area – including fans and friends coming for the rugby.

Led by Helen Astrid, an acclaimed opera singer who runs singing workshops and Nicholas Cleobury, a world-renowned conductor, with Caroline Dowdle accompanying everyone on the piano.
