Choral Workshops

Early morning Chi Kung

The Lighter Side warmly welcomes keen choral singers of a reasonably accomplished standard and with a keen ear and sense of rhythm to a week of wonderful music making.

Here you will find a wild selection of foot stomping fun pieces with plenty of pure sentimental nostalgia to keep emotions balanced. Several pieces could challenge the hardiest regular but enough of the repertoire is very approachable to ensure our concert will be the success we have come to expect and enjoy. Be prepared to work hard, but essentially remember to bring a loud costume for the concert!

                     Where possible pre-preparation of the music is advisable.
