Pop-Up Jazz Choir for Ballydehob Jazz Festival May 2019

For this years’ Ballydehob Jazz Festival I will be leading a workshop to create a Pop-Up Jazz Choir to take out onto the streets before the parade begins on Sunday 5th May. The workshop is open to all and will be from 3-4pm….so come along and join us! Then we will go out onto the streets to have some fun singing our songs ‘Pop-Up’ style in different spots up and down the village.

Craig Lees Vocal Workshop, Rosscarbery July 2019

I am hugely excited to be bringing Craig Lees back to West Cork this coming Saturday 13th July for another exciting Vocal Workshop Day!

Short video of his last workshop with us here:

“Enjoy a whistle stop tour through the world of Rock and Pop Choral singing, designed to fill you with fresh ideas to take back to your choir. Learn new songs and explore new techniques in style and blend. The morning session will cover warming up and performance technique, while the afternoon is all about performance and stagecraft, including the opportunity for some brave soloists to take to the stage!”

We will be using the Celtic Ross Hotel in Rosscarbery for this event with it’s beautiful views over the water and it’s bird life. With the beach only a short distance away you can choose to bring your own picnic, take a stroll up to the villages cafes, or simply relax and enjoy your lunch break at the hotel.

Craig is a Contemporary Vocal Coach, Choral Director, and Arranger. He is also a Senior Lecturer and is a director of the British Voice Association. (BVA)
