Human songbirds in Waitati?

by Karen Jacquard


Recently at a Tony Backhouse singing workshop (a capella, gospel and world music styles) three Waitatians, Jenny and PJ, and Karen, talked about their wish for a singing group to meet regularly in the village. Nancy Miller, who has directed choirs for many years (including Sunny Side Up), has offered to hold a workshop for interested people, and/or run a regular singing meet. At present we envisage the meeting to be held -- according to numbers -- in someone's home or in the hall side room. This is informal, and fun, and you need not have past experience or know how to read music. Choice of material has yet to be decided, however it will be four-part harmony and unaccompanied, and at first the style will probably be gospel, world music. So, if you enjoy singing in the shower, shed, kitchen, with other people ... or if you are even unsure that you can sing and yet are interested in learning, then please contact Karen on 482 2335
