Sign up for sing­ing day

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Tonight’s Tv -

SIGN up to a fun and lively sum­mer sing­ing day led by a tal­ented mu­sic group later this month.

Spald­ing-based group Voiced Un­plugged is stag­ing the day on June 26.

Led by singer and acapella ar­ranger Gi­tika Part­ing­ton, the day at the South Hol­land Cen­tre is de­signed for any­one in­ter­ested in sing­ing – even those who’ve never sung be­fore.

Voice Un­plugged sec­re­tary Kate Dick­ens said: “You don’t need to be able to read mu­sic – in fact, there won’t be any to read – or have any kind of sing­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. What­ever your mu­si­cal abil­ity, you’ll be sure to get some­thing from the day.”

The in­for­mal, fun day will start with funky warm-ups then grad­u­ally build up some heart and feet warm­ing songs from pop­u­lar, gospel and world mu­sic styles in unac­com­pa­nied har­mony.

Ev­ery­thing will be taught by Gi­tika – who di­rects four non-au­di­tion adult choirs in London – by ear.

The day starts at 10.30am, and fin­ishes at 4pm. Tick­ets are £16 from the South Hol­land Cen­tre box of­fice (01775 764777).

Voices Un­plugged, led by mu­si­cal di­rec­tor Jane Wells, will be start­ing its au­tumn se­ries of work­shops on Septem­ber 25.

Ses­sions are nor­mally held at the Methodist Church in Broad Street from 2.30 to 4.30pm.
