We hope you will be able to join us at the 7th networking weekend for Scottish community choir and singing group leaders at Pitlochry Scottish Youth Hostel from 24th to 26th February 2017.
The weekend is open to anyone who leads a choir or facilitates singing in some way e.g. choirs, workshops, schools, house groups. The emphasis is on teaching and learning aurally.
This year we are focusing on Sea Shanties and Call and Response Songs and invite anyone coming on the weekend to bring songs to share.
Alongside these sessions, there will be plenty of opportunities for singing together throughout the weekend. This is a wonderful opportunity to take time out from your own practice and to be nurtured and nourished.
The weekend costs £120 (£80 concession), which includes accommodation, training and a basic vegetarian menu. In order to keep costs to a minimum, we ask participants to bring little extras to share during mealtimes, such as cake, wine and condiments and to help out with laying the table, washing the dishes and tidying up. More on this to follow! If anyone would like to help with the smooth running of the weekend – with facilitation or programming, please let us know.
We have a small number of £50 travel bursaries for those coming a long distance. Please contact Alison Burns before you book on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to apply for one of them.
