An afternoon of gorgeous singing and song, in the Gospel and World Music traditions
The workshop, led by Melbourne-based Annemarie Sharry (South Of The River Choir) and Tracey Miller (Victorian College of the Arts and The Dusty Millers), will include basic vocal technique, fun warm games and rounds, soundscapes, improvisation and 3-4 part harmony World Music repertoire for mixed voices of all ages and abilities!
Annemarie Sharry is offering a singing workshop in Castlemaine, which should be terrific.
Some of us have seen the dynamic, groovy choir, South Of The River, at Daylesford Singers’ Festival.
At this stage Saturday August 17 (probably 2.00 – 4.00 or 4.30) is the most likely date – to be confirmed, when we see how many people would like to come along.
The cost wd be $20/$15.
Could you please let me know as soon as possible (pref straight away) if you are interested.
Terry found a recording of the original performance of Canto General, with Theodorakis conducting. From this I’ve extracted the 3 movements of Algunas Bestias (formerly known as Eric). The first movement we’ve performed, the second ‘slow movement’ we’re learning, and the third we haven’t got to yet. Here are the three, as audio tracks …
The time has come and we are to begin the year. I am really looking forward to it. I hope that you all had a wonderful break and feel renewed.
PLEASE NOTE: The South School is still on holidays We will begin rehearsal this Monday 14th Jan 7.45pm sharp to 9.30pm at THE UNITING CHURCH CHAPEL. I am happy to go to 9.45, if that is the consensus and not too late for everyone.
Normally we will be following Corker Orchestra’s rehearsal. They finish at 7.30, so please try to give them space to pack up and perhaps come at 7.40, (which after all is often the time we normally get going!). And, just one reminder that the concession fee from this year is now $10/$12(full).
I have found some lovely things for us to sing including an arrangement of Blackbird(Beatles), a Jewish Sephardic lullaby, What a wonderful world, and more…oh yes, of course, the continuation of ‘Erik’!!, the slow movement.
Bohemian Rhapsody will be a Mainesong and Corker combo, so it’s a big arrangement for me, still in progress.
