Acapella Singing for Women: Harmony and Health

Ref: C3672346

This popular class will help you learn to sing with other women in an a cappella choir. We sing rounds and part-songs from around the world, as well as gently exercising body, breath and voice. All songs are taught by ear and no prior singing experience or expertise is needed for this class. Every term we set ourselves a 'stretch' goal as a group which may include an optional performance opportunity. Summer 2018 will see us in concert with other choirs at the Stephen Joseph Theatre.
