A swinging day of tantalizing melodies, crunchy harmonies and fiendish rhythms. This Jazz and Swing Harmonies workshop is inspired by the complex, close harmonies found in British and American popular songs from the 1920s, 30s and 40s. The day can include standards from this period, unexpected songs that have been given the jazz or swing treatment and songs that have been created purely for these workshops. Some of the melodies may be familiar and therefore fairly quick to pick up; the harmony parts are varied, with some parts offering a challenge even to experienced acapella singers.
We shall be singing in the spacious community room behind Penrallt Baptist Church. It provides a self-contained space, with kitchen facilities, and is home to singing groups as well as other arts, education and community groups. It is accessible to disabled people. This venue is 5 minutes’ drive from the A55. ½ a mile from Bangor train station and a 1 minute walk from local bus stops.
