Singing for Fun with Matt Baker

Saturday 16th January, 2016
We were treated to a wonderful workshop today at Caldy Valley Church presented by Matt Baker. Elaine writes,

I have just returned from the Matt Baker workshop at Caldy Valley, having had the most wonderful afternoon. The hall was packed with faces old and new, all enjoying the singing experience. As Tom said,’ It may have been cold and miserable outside, but inside it was warm and glowing!’ Thanks to everyone who helped to make the afternoon so successful.

 

Gothic singing workshop

Saturday 31st October, 2015
Ellie the pumpkinWe enjoyed a thrilling, spooky Hallowe’en themed Gothic singing workshop led by Catherine Harrison. The song choices were right on the mark. One of the choir members commented later that of the songs we did in the workshop, three were featured later that evening on “Strictly Come Dancing”. The workshop attracted quite a wide age range with the youngest being only 10 months old. Ellie even came along in fancy dress.

World Music Workshop

On Saturday 6th June, we enjoyed a splendid afternoon of a capella singing led by Martin Jones. We were sounding like an authentic African choir or “villagers of Bosnia” in just a couple of short hours!

This 60 second video taster gives an idea of what we achieved…

Just some of the lovely comments from those who attended…

“For a first time choral experience it was terrific.”

“A very enjoyable afternoon.”

“It was very well put together. Martin had just the right pace to help us reach competence with each song. A lovely mix of songs too.”

“The group felt like a group from the start, and it was all really dynamic and stimulating.”

“A really friendly, happy, feel good afternoon”

“We all had a really good time and enjoyed the whole experience. Lovely refreshments, friendly people. Wonderful hospitality. Brilliant.”
