His­tor­i­cal sing­ing classes on of­fer

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

RES­I­DENTS can learn a his­tory of sing­ing tra­di­tions at a mu­si­cal work­shop in Stam­ford later this month.

The work­shop, teach­ing a whole range of songs from across East­ern Europe in­clud­ing spine-tin­gling har­monies from the Balkans, haunt­ing chants from the Rus­sian Ortho­dox church, gypsy pas­sion, gor­geous clash­ing har­monies from Geor- gia and much more, will be held at Stam­ford Arts Cen­tre from 10.30am to 4.30pm on June 19.

All songs will be taught by ear in the tra­di­tional way at the cen­tre, in St Mary’s Street, Stam­ford.

No pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary, just a love of sing­ing.

This will be a re­laxed, in­for­mal and fun cel­e­bra­tion of group har­mony sing­ing. This work­shop is open to all whether they are used to just sing­ing in the bath or per­form­ing in pub­lic.

All songs have been care­fully cho­sen and ar­ranged for unac­com­pa­nied voice. The cost for the day is £15 adult and £12 con­ces­sion.

Tick­ets are avail­able from Stam­ford Arts Cen­tre box of­fice on 01780 763203.
