Description

Love singing? Then come to THE MUCKLE SING 2018!

A very special day for community singing groups and individual singers, including a morning and afternoon workshops, performance platform and a short concert from our tutor, Karine Polwart. All welcome - from the beginner to the experienced performer and no need to be able to read music.

All are welcome - from the beginner to the experienced performer and no need to be able to read music.

It is difficult to sum up Karine’s many achievements in one short paragraph, and she will already be well-known to many people: indeed she has been one of our tutors at ELTMSA Singers’ Gatherings in the past, and has often featured in your “recommended tutors” suggestions. She has accrued many awards, and her recent very personal theatre production “Wind Resistance” became the hottest ticket in town. More about her here: https://www.karinepolwart.com/home and on her “about” page.

Tea, coffee, juice, tap water and biscuits included in the workshop price.

We do not supply any food for purchase, so you may either bring what you prefer in your own packed lunches, or there are shops and a bakery just over the road, that sell filled rolls etc, and other local cafes/pubs.
