Ready, steady, sing! with Alcester Singers' open to all workshop

Ross Crawford 24th Aug, 2019

A SINGING workshop has been organised by the Alcester Singers – and everybody’s invited to go along and burst into song.

Called Ready, Steady, Sing! it’s on Saturday, September 7 from 2pm and will give people the chance to find out what it’s like to sing at a public performance – and absolutely no singing experience is necessary.

Participants will be allocated to one of three voice sections: Soprano, alto, and tenor/bass.

With skilled teachers they’ll learn a selection of traditional, stage musical, and well-known classical pieces.

The workshop will then end with the three voice sections coming together in a full rehearsal of the pieces.

At 6.30pm the workshop students will unite to perform the pieces in concert in St Nicholas Church in Alcester in a free concert.

The event will be under the overall direction of Dr Helen Smith, musical director/conductor of The Alcester Singers and members will be involved in the singing.

The fee for the workshop is just £5 and all materials will be included.
