The Graduate School returns for another eight week session this Autumn! If you are interested in singing and/or looking for something social to do during the week, come find your inner (& outer!) voice by joining in the Graduate School Choir, meeting weekly on Tuesdays from 6.30pm – 8.00pm in TR2 of the Graduate School. Commencing on Tuesday 18 October 2016, this eight week course will introduce you to music from around the world in a fun and enjoyable manner. Previous experience of singing would be a bonus but not an essential and all songs will be learnt by ear so don’t worry if you can’t remember how to or have ever read music. All we are looking for are enthusiastic participants who have a love of sound!
While any PG student is welcome, numbers are limited to 20 so please register your interest by signing up below……
Each session will be facilitated by community music practitioner, Róisín Whyte. Originally from Co. Galway Róisín has lived in Belfast since 2008. Her working life has been an eclectic mix of radio and music. Classically trained on the piano, she teaches piano privately and also designs & delivers community music projects, often in schools, ALWAYS involving singing. In addition she plays a little violin, tuned percussion and acoustic guitar.
She is currently arranging original songs for first steps into studio recording, collaborating with fellow musicians and collecting war wounds from the open mic circuit: roisinwhyte.com
The Choir is free to join and last year we had a lovely group of students participating and feedback was very positive. It was a welcomed break from postgraduate study and a nice way to meet new students.
