Venue, Timing and Cost
Find your voice. Learn beautiful songs, powerful songs. An eclectic mix of folk , gospel, lullabies and songs from aural traditions around the world. Also new works by living writers for female a capella harmony.
You don't need to read music. Teaching is clear and encouraging by experienced Natural Voice leader Emily Marshall who will have you singing in satisfying harmony together with no stress.
We perform several times a year at the Abbey so there are a few additional rehearsal commitments nearer those dates otherwise the group is run as a workshop so women can drop-in any time. No pressure to sign up if you're just curious though many attend regularly and have made this friendly mixed age chorus an important part of their week.
N.B. Please note sessions are strictly on the first and third Thursdays of the month.
The Great Hall is a lovely atmospheric place to sing. Just walking through the door is your audition.
Hot drinks available. In mid-winter the fire is lit and in warmer months the doors are opened on to the lawns.
"When you sing with a group of people, you learn how to subsume yourself into a group consciousness... That's one of the great feelings - to stop being me for a little while and to become us. That way lies empathy, the great social virtue." (Brian Eno)
