Come and sing wonderful three-part Georgian harmony songs with Beth de Lange. Georgian traditional folk harmony is designated part of the world’s Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. Beth is passionate about Georgian song and ran the Derby Georgian Choir for seven years. She has studied with various visiting Georgian singers, as well as a visit to Svaneti in 2013. We will dip into her repertoire, which includes toasts, round dances, healing songs, church songs, urban songs, cradle songs, horse riding songs, and greeting and drinking songs.
The sessions will happen once per month. It’s ok to drop in to one, or commit to all four Autumn term sessions. Complete beginners are welcome, as well as those more familiar with Georgian harmony singing, If you’d like to request a song you’d like us to sing, please get in touch.
These harmonies are traditionally sung by all-male, or all-female groups. We will sing with whoever comes to the group, so if we are mixed, expect to sing in your upper range if male or comfortable to low range if female.
Each session costs £6/5 concessions. If you book all four sessions up front (Sundays; September 9th, October 14th, November 18th, December 16th) you can pay £22/£18. It would be nice if folks could book ahead, so I don’t have to sit and do admin at the start of each session. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for info on how to book and pay. It’s also ok to turn up without booking – I know that’s the only option for some folks.
