SING A CAPPELLA
Come and sing with us! On 27th April the Voice Festival will be running an introduction to a cappella singing in an hour, 1-2pm at Wellington College, near Reading. This session will be led by Dominic Peckham, as seen on ‘The One Show’! Whether you’re an experienced choral singer who wants to try something a bit different, or have only ever sung in the shower, come and join this fun, interactive session. Tickets and more details here.
Of course, there are already lots of fantastic vocal groups out there who need new members. Could it be you? Have a look at the directories created by our friends at Sing A Cappella (for over 18s) and the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain (for under 18s) and see if you can find the group that’s right for you.
START A GROUP
Start a group! You don’t necessarily need to be able to read or write music to start a group. Start from scratch with a few friends, a bit of vocal talent and a lot of enthusiasm! We can even send a Voice Festival UK vocal practitioner to help get you started. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org for support in getting a group off the ground.
