Singing Workshop

Led by Jim Hawkins

You are warmly invited to come and sing two exclusive new arrangements of “Blinded By Your Grace” (Stormzy) and “Daddy” (Coldplay) in the most beautiful setting of the VOCES8 Centre.

These songs – both sensitive and uplifting – will be taught by Jim Hawkins, a successful and experienced Choral Director, Arranger & Producer.  You can expect a wonderful time of learning and exploring new music and harmony, and come away with enhanced skills and ideas to bring back to your regular singing.

An singing workshop event not to be missed!
