Wonderful World of Song: Harmony, Vocal Colour and Movement for Everyone
Moira travels the world-wide network of choral music to create joyous, deeply musical singing experiences. She has traveled and listened widely, and has always been drawn back to the power of the folksong, body percussion and harmony. Moira’s articulate and gentle approach will have you singing with full breath & relaxation, and your ear sharpened for style & timbre! Moira quickly gets a group singing by ear as well as by music reading – you will experience four-part harmony, singing in other languages, improvising and moving. [; Repertoire from folk / new music of: Eastern Europe, Appalachia, Americana, Irish/Scots, Moira’s compositions ];
You do not need to prepare in advance – just come with open ears and your voice, in whatever shape you find it!!
