‘GraceNotes’ – A New and exciting Vocal Performance Project for 2017

Vocal Performance Group to appear at Ballydehob Jazz Festival 2017

Last autumn I set up a succession of workshops to prepare a group brought together specifically for performing at the Kinsale Jazz Festival. The participants enjoyed the project very much and said that working together with this approach for a one- off performance with more experienced singers was very rewarding. We learned four songs with a contemporary Jazz flavour over two full day workshops – some which were well known, some abstract and one written by myself. Many of the participants said that they would like to do more.

So based on this feedback I am launching a new project with a similar approach. Individuals sign up for monthly rehearsals and are expected to learn their parts and lyrics between rehearsals, thus speeding up the process of learning the songs and providing more time time for collectively polishing up the performance side of the project.

The next succession of workshops are working towards a performance at Ballydehob Jazz Festival for the May Bank Holiday Weekend. If you are interested in getting involved with this project then get in touch. Participants must be available for ALL rehearsals prior to the performance.
