Each year we organise at least one workshop, usually on a Saturday. These are held in or near to Birnam and are open to members, as well as to members of and visitors to the wider community who spot the opportunity and decide to come along.
Members are offered a discount on workshop fees, which tend to range from £15 to £30 for the day, depending on the costs of the venue and of the tutor fee and travel distance.
The workshops offer an opportunity for a more in-depth exploration of songs which the workshop tutor brings.
Workshops will be included, as soon as details are confirmed with tutors, in our Calendar.
Day workshops tend to run from 10:00 till 16:30 with an hour’s break at lunch-time.
May 2015 Perth with Debra Salem
On Saturday 7th September at Craigie Church Hall, Abbot St. Perth, 38 of us enjoyed a wonderful day full of song and much laughter with Irene Railley from Edinburgh.
All of us had sung with Irene before in various choirs around the Perthshire area including, Leven Voices, Carse Voices, Horsecross Voices, Craigie Choir and of course Just Singin'. We knew we were in for a treat and we were not disappointed. We received lots of feedback on the day to say how much they were enjoying it and that we need to do it again. Here's a quote sent by email too.
"thankyou for organising such a super day. First time I've been to a day workshop and I didn't know if I would make it to the end, but the time simply flew! Needless to say Irene was fantastic (as was all the homebaking and tea). Please do it again!. Many thanks. A."
"E and I enjoyed Irene's fantastic contribution to a thoroughly stimulating singing session. Congratulations for coming up with this initiative. Venue was excellent."
We will indeed be doing it again! Watch this space.
