Further information:

Sarah Pennington and Gilo return to Othona for this annual event, with songs from a wide variety of traditions to make this ancient place ring with harmonies.  All sessions take place in the wonderful acoustics of the Chapel of St-Peter-on-the-Wall, which has stood since the year 650.  The sound in the chapel has a quality nowhere else can come close to, and with candlelight in the evenings it looks truly magical.

No need to read music or think or yourself as a singer.  Just bring your voice and a willingness to sing.  Best to book early as this is always a popular event.

“Sarah and Gilo are that rare phenomenon, teachers who are willing to let go and allow the song to live on its own – magic!” – Festival participant

“It was great to see how you both create an atmosphere of trust that empowers people to sing. It’s clear that you both enjoy working together.”
– Festival participant

This is a weekend event with the option to join in just for the day on Saturday 25th April.  Registration and tea/coffee from 10am, workshop starts at 10.30am and includes lunch.  Participants can choose whether to stay for supper and a further evening session with the chapel aflicker with candlelight.
