Pop – Up Choir at Kilkee Festival Sept. 2019

What a brilliant time I had at the annual Che do Bheatha Festival in Kilkee last weekend! My first visit and so many lovely people to meet! About 25 singers turned up to learn some 4 part harmony songs which we then performed on stage to a wonderfully appreciative audience – who I also got to join in!! Hope to return again some time soon!

Music Workshops in Youghal July 2019

On Wednesday 24th July, I’ll be bringing two Music Workshops into the community of Youghal. This will be my first visit with my music and I’m really excited about meeting new people to share with.

From 1-2pm there will be a Family Music Workshop held in the Methodist Hall on Friar Street. This workshop is aimed at parents and children between 4-10 years old, and is designed as a fun learning opportunity for building confidence and developing musical skills together. All children must be accompanied by an adult, and all adults are expected to join in with the activities! An entrance fee of E5 per person is being asked to help cover expenses.

From 4-6pm, I’ll be leading a Harmony Singing Workshop in Celtic Folk Song. This is part of the programme organised by the Youghal Creative Cultural Pop Up Shop running from 114, North Main Street over the months of July and August. Adults and young people who love to sing are welcome to come along and enjoy learning these harmony-filled songs in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. No previous experience or ability to read music is needed as I teach with a ‘call and response’ approach, making it easy for everyone to join in. This workshop is free of charge.

Pop-Up Jazz Choir for Ballydehob Jazz Festival May 2019

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. More information can be found nearer the time via the website: www.ballydehobjazzfestival.org

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 the 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.

You can see a short video of the event here:

COMMUNITY CHOIR DAY 2019

Community Choir Day 2019 will be held on Saturday 2nd November at the beautiful location of Inchydoney Island Hotel near Clonakilty in West Cork.  We are delighted to be welcoming Ciaran Kelly and Vicky Warwick from Irelands’ leading acapella 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.

Choir Day 2019(2)

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.

Lunch. A limited amount of tickets are available which include lunch (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.
