Historical singing classes on offer
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.
