Sing your heart out at an all-day workshop

cropped-rolled_staveHere at St Luke’s, we’re very proud of our music. Our resident choir wow us with their angelic voices every Sunday morning, and at other services throughout the month. Meanwhile, choirmaster Justin Butcher also runs our community choir, Vox Holloway (, which gives anyone from the local area (and further afield) a chance to exercise their lungs and join a group of enthusiastic singers rehearsing and performing a wide variety of music.

But it doesn’t stop there. This Saturday, 20 April, Vox Holloway is hosting an all-day singing workshop to help you brush up your vocal skills. From 10am to 5pm, there’ll be three workshops led by professional musicians, focusing on improving your singing technique; singing in harmony; and reading music. Lunch will be provided, when you’ll have a chance to meet and chat with other participants. You can also book a 30-minute individual singing lesson for an additional cost.

In the evening, from 6pm-8pm, there’ll be a social event to round up the day, when you can enjoy a special preview of a new work, ‘The Prophet’ by Harvey Brough (of Harvey & The Wallbangers fame). Wine and nibbles will be available.

‘You don’t have to be an experienced singer to join this workshop,’ says Justin Butcher. ‘It’s suitable for all levels, and anyone who loves to sing and wants to improve their skills is very welcome to come along.’

The whole day costs just £10 (£5 concessions), including lunch. One-to-one lessons cost £15, and are available on a first come, first served basis. This event is open to anyone in the community aged 16 or over. For further information or to book your place, email or call 07814 575373.
