This is a great opportunity to see if singing 4part a cappella harmony with this fun and friendly bunch of women is going to be your new hobby!
We currently have 35 singers, from teenage to 70s and we are ready to welcome more.
We have started the year learning the beautiful Edith Piaf ballad “If You Love Me Really Love Me”. At the free open night we will introduce an a cappella arrangement of Adele’s popular song “Rolling in the Deep” which we will continue to work on over the following weeks, as part of a 4-week singing workshop. The workshop will include vocal education covering basic singing skills as well as an introduction to singing 4-part women’s a capella harmony in the barbershop style.
Thousands of Kiwis across the country enjoy barbershop singing. It’s no wonder – the beautiful melodies, ringing chords, sweet harmonies and dynamic rhythms make this music fun for all! Mix that with the support of a group of like-minded women, we are sure you will become hooked!
Workshop registration will be $40 and there are limited places available. To register or for any other enquiries please feel free to email Jenny at email@example.com.
