Val Regan singing workshop 25th November

Somewhere in my haste and enthusiasm I left off a vital bit of information about this workshop – because it is what we always do I somehow thought it was obvious, but it is’t!

It is a capella, 3-4 part harmony, not individual singing. Thanks for the question, Chris.

Everyone is welcome, no experience necessary taught by ear.

Out Aloud Choir under the direction of Val Reagan

We could really do with a few more people to make this a viable event, so please pass the word on to singing friends.

It will happen anyway but at the moment we will make a loss on it, and it was supposed to be raising funds for Solstice Shorts Festival!
