What a fantastic day we had at our Choir day at the Celtic Ross Hotel in Rosscarbery last weekend, with members from many choirs around West Cork and Cork as well as enthusiastic individuals keen to join us for the day. Craig lead us for the morning, teaching us some wonderful 4 – part harmony contemporary songs and charmed us all with his interesting, warm and accessible approach. Following a buffet lunch, we learned a new song taught by Caz and then enjoyed listening to choirs sharing some of their songs, before closing in song together lead by Jane Goss.
We are planning to make this an annual event at around the same time each year…..so put it in your diary, tell your choirs and singing friends and sign up to the E-Newsletter at the top of the page to keep notified of coming events.
A great afternoon with around 40 singers getting together in Dunmanway to learn Bohemian Rhapsody from the amazing Freddie Mercury. We did really well and had a ball….well done guys! No mean feat! Here’s just a few pics from the day which have come in so far….
Wonder where we’ll take it next!!!!
Great to be planning my return to work with singers in the area of Orgiva in Southern Spain. My third visit to the area now! Looking forward to returning and meeting up with lovely people there once again.
Looking forward to taking part in the activities for Culture Night…this year on our own doorstep! We will be giving a short performance in a concert at the Holy Trinity Church on Colla Road in Schull. We are delighted to welcome Polly Barrett along as our special guest to share some of her beautiful songs too! This event is free…..do come along and enjoy the evening with us.
Following the concert we will be heading to Newmans’ for the scoraiocht where we look forward to sharing a few more songs alongside many other wonderfully talented and fun contributors to the evening!
Now here’s an exciting and dynamic workshop I’m running together with Community Choir leader, Jane Goss. It’s aimed at everyone who loves the classics…..an opportunity to blast out the fantastic song, Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen!!
This is a Pop-Up Choir style session with a BIG difference as we will be working to a backing track, yet learning all those scrumptious harmonies to go with it! Our first project under ‘The Shameless Karaoke Choir’ title. This is the first run of this workshop…on our own home territory…so come and join us in Dunmanway on Saturday 13th October. We intend to bring this workshop out to many areas in Ireland. It will also be available for private hire as a team building activity and for arts events etc.
Come and have a blast!!
What a great day we had last Sunday at Myross Wood! The next project begins on Sunday 16th September in the Riverside Studio’s in Skibbereen. Get in touch to find out more and to to book your place!
Wonderful to be invited back to Norwich again by Meg Turpin and the Norwich Community Choir. Hopefully many others will join us too.
Then bringing my first workshop to Chelmsford to The Transition – an interesting looking artists space and cafe which I’m told will be excellent for singing in! So looking forward to meeting new people!
