On the morning of the 16th November, some of our ladies and a very welcome group of visitors to the choir enjoyed a workshop led by Clive, Derrick and Hilary.
During the morning, we learnt three new songs, Steal Away, Oh Happy Day and Do Do Ron Ron. Thanks to some sectional rehearsals, we went from not knowing these songs to siniging in three part harmony by the end of the morning (some phrases more harmoniously than others!). We also enjoyed learning new techniques and some novel exercises to warm up. The mezzos were delighted to be the biggest section for a change and we hope that our visiting ladies have been inspired to join the Swift Singers. A huge thanks must for to Clive, Derrick and Hilary for working so hard to riun such an engaging and fun workshop – looking forward to the next one?!! If you missed the workshop but would like to try the choir out, please feel free to come along to one of our rehearsals at 8pm on a Tuesday in the Village Hall.
