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.

Community Choir Day 2019

In November 2018 Caz Jeffreys and Jane Goss (West Cork based Community Choir leader) collaborated to bring Craig Lees over from UK for a Choir Day event in The Celtic Ross Hotel, Rosscarbery, West Cork. The day was a big success with all tickets sold out and has now become an annual event.

COMMUNITY CHOIR DAY 2019

Choir Day 2019

Community Choir Day 2019 will be held on Saturday 2nd November at the beautiful location of Inchydoney Island Hotel near Clonakilty.  We are delighted to be welcoming Ciaran Kelly and Vicky Warwick from Irelands’ leading A-Capella group, Ardu to facilitate at the event. The morning will consist of an enjoyable learning experience whilst the afternoon is a chance for choirs to share some of their songs.

Ardu’s professional singers will be leading the songs, introducing fun warmups, followed by vocal technique and expression- all delivered through the structure of some fabulous arrangements with a dynamic approach.
Whilst Ciaran will lead from the keyboard , they will incorporate some elements of their specialist skill- the art of Acapella – and engage us all with captivating vocal textures and harmonies.

Would your choir like to perform a few songs? If your choir would like to perform a few songs during the afternoon session then please get in touch with Jane on 085 1665936 who will book you in and answer any questions. We had members from five local choirs singing last year, and it was a delight to hear them. Please be aware that we only have limited time available for this part of the event and choirs will be allocated a space to perform on a first-come-first-served basis.

Tickets can be purchased to include lunch inside the dining room- soup, salad and sandwiches, or if you prefer to take a trip into Clonakilty (only 10 minutes drive) there are a selection of eating houses to choose from. There will also be a limited amount of space downstairs from the bar menu. We will take 1 1/2 hours break for lunch to ensure everyone has plenty of time.

This year we have introduced a deal for group bookings of 8 people or more.

Tickets will be available shortly….
