Beat the end of summer blues and start your autumn with a bang with an afternoon discovering the joys of acapella harmony singing, guided by one of the foremost workshop leaders in the UK. This workshop is for EVERYONE – all songs taught by ear so no previous experience and special skills required. Come and luxuriate in the sumptuous harmonies of singing traditions across the world from Africa to Eastern Europe, British folk to pop with a dash of original contemporary arrangements for community singing groups.
Across the world and throughout history human beings have come together to sing – to hush a child, to work, to bind their communities together, to tell stories, to celebrate and mourn. Joining your voice with others is a real feel good experience – and singing in harmony is exhilarating….. and it’s a great way to bring people together.
Why not give it a try?
The venue: The Orange Box in located in the centre of Halifax and is associated with The Square Chapel and just round the corner from it. It is a modern, light building and fully accessible.

Still not sure? Here are some recommendations by previous participants:
“What I love is that you get a real sense of achievement very quickly – Jenny has the ability to bring the harmonies together with ease so you are soon making a lush, beautiful sound together.”
“I don’t sing with a regular choir so it’s brilliant to get the buzz and feelgood factor of singing with others in an easy bite-size afternoon workshop.”
“Jenny is simply one of the best teachers around – patient, encouraging, knowledgeable, clear – she creates an atmosphere which is relaxed, friendly and fun.”
“I love Jenny’s warm ups – I feel my voice has been cared for and my voice is really “in” my body before we even start singing.”
“I always go away inspired and uplifted.”
