Join us for an exhilarating afternoon workshop for Upper Voices, led by renowned vocal coach Suzzie Vango.

A fun and lively workshop for Sopranos and Altos who sing in a choir, or would like to sing in a choir, with a focus on:

·     How to keep your voice healthy ( warm up and vocal coaching techniques)

·     How to engage support easily

·     How to keep vocal stamina

·     How to blend and improve intonation

Our singing workshops are popular events, and our last workshop on the Verdi Requiem attracted nearly 100 singers

'Just a note to thank you so much for the singing workshop today. I thoroughly enjoyed the day & the friendliness of the other singers. The humour & patience of the conductor was the icing on the cake!!'

'Just wanted to say that I had a fabulous time yesterday and left the Verdi workshop exhilarated, on a high and wanting more!'
