On  21 November 2018, we held our first Singing Workshop for 7 – 11 year olds at the Chelmsford Music School. Our Music Tutors  introduced new vocal warm-ups and taught a variety of songs.

 

Here’s is what happened….

Dave Arch, Essex Music Services, Ensembles & Operations Assistant said “Despite only having a small group, all those who attended enjoyed the experience. After doing some fun vocal warm-ups the group joined in with the Essex Youth Chamber Choir, who rehearse fortnightly at Chelmsford Music School. The choir was putting finishes touches to an upcoming performance.

Despite feeling a little daunted at first the workshop attendees embraced the experience and were made to feel very welcome by the members of the choir. It was incredible for a small group of 7-11 year olds to learn their parts so quickly and sing so enthusiastically.

Following the success of the workshop a new Training Choir will be meeting fortnightly from January at Chelmsford Music School. We hope to see lots of new recruits in January.”
