25th November 12:45-17:15 St Hilda’s Church Hall, Courtrai Road, Crofton Park SE23 1NL
In preparation for our planned women’s vote centenary celebrations we’ve invited renowned chorus leader and song writer Val Regan down from Sheffield to run a singing workshop. Come and learn a mix of songs about women by Val and others.
Val has worked as a community musician since 1993. She leads choirs and singing workshops around the U.K. and Europe, plus a host of music-making, composition and theatre projects. She writes songs for community choirs, is published by Oxford University Press and firmly believes there is no such thing as a wrong note.
Come and spend an afternoon learning some great songs. The workshop will feature a new original song, Nasty, for feminists of all genders and none, plus an Icelandic gem and a traditional Sheffield carol.
a capella, 3-4 part harmony, not individual singing.
Everyone is welcome, no experience necessary taught by ear.
£25 includes refreshments, and access to recordings after the event.
If you are coming to our Singing workshop with Lester Simpson, (there are 8 places left by the way!) it would be worth dropping round the corner to CroftFest’s CroftMass on your way. It starts at 12 and there are food stalls and markets and Santa’s Grotto (If you don’t feel too old for that!). So just nice time to grab your lunch from the ‘famous vegetarian food stall’ at Jays, or get your face painted at the Estate Agents!
You can now book for Lester Simpson’s Folk Song Workshop on 26th November – our Solstice ‘Advent’ event! 12.45-5.15 pm, £25.
Come and learn around 5 acapella songs in 3 or 4 part harmony, from Lester Simpson an international recording artist, and member of the renowned Coope Boyes & Simpson, who also runs community choirs. Informal but intense, lots of tea and biscuits. Access to sound files after the event. St Hilda’s Church Hall, Courtrai Road, Crofton Park SE23 1NL
