Vox Voices - a cappella singing workshops
Tue, 4 Oct 2016, 20:00 – Tue, 6 Dec 2016, 21:15 BST
Restorative and uplifting, come and experience the joy of being part of an a cappella vocal group. Make space for this weekly musical experience in your busy lives.
'If you know you can sing, if you think you can’t, if you love singing, if you want to sing with other people….this vocal group is for you..'
The Autumn season of 9 workshops starts on 4th OCTOBER at 8pm at NEW N16 AUTUMN VENUE. Read on for full info and why everyone needs a weekly collective singing space....
What is different about Vox Voices? (a SoundsCreative neighbourhood project)
We move, we sing, we add body percussion and learn to move seamlessly from part to part - it's sound for the soul.
The Vox Voices experience is relaxed, friendly and playful, a welcome weekly expressive space.
No experience is needed and everything learnt by ear, the repertoire includes original arrangements of folk melodies; songs picked up on travels and from other musicians, rediscovered jazz arrangements and a bit of collective improv too!
It is led by Tara Franks (Cellist/singer and founder of SoundsCreative Projects). All singing is a cappella with the odd song accompanied by cello.
Each season there is an added workshop with a guest artist. This Autumn we are very pleased to welcome Alba Cabral of Let Drum Beat- Brazilian vocalist and percussionist who will lead a body percussion and voice workshop.
“Tara has a rare gift of creating a really warm collaborative and fun environment with great musical results.”
“I can't tell you how uplifting and magical a thing it is”
"... No matter how big or small the group is the way we learn never fails to produce a beautiful and extremely satisfying sound almost immediately.
“beautiful arrangements of such a thoughtful selection of songs”
“I have found it liberating to learn everything by ear…and then the skills to allow us to swap effortlessly between them. It's the highlight of my week"
