Further information:

A unique opportunity to engage in a series of six singing workshops on the theme of PROTEST.
Facilitated by a professional singing coach and a social historian (Radio Days) we will explore a range of protest songs from various moments in history, each within its historical and social context.

This is a free workshop open to all who would like to sing with us, no matter your singing experience. All the music will be taught by ear and our facilitator has wide experience in leading community singing, as well as in vocal work with actors and theatre students.

ON THE FIRST 2 WORKSHOPS (26 APRIL & 3 MAY) we will listen to learn very old protest songs, dating back to the 17th century,and we will listen to stories about people’s struggles.

ON WORKSHOPS 3 AND 4 (10 &17 MAY) we will explore the various reasons why we sing to protest, the underlying emotions and their relationship with our body, and how this affects our expressiveness.

ON THE LAST 2 WORKSHOPS (24 & 31 MAY) we will listen to songs written in the last 100 years and delve into their stories and meanings. We will also start to prepare  the songs for the 100 years commemoration event that will take place on 21st June.
