There are three excellent workshops being offered at this years inaugural Busselton SongFest.  You can access any or all of them on a single $15 ticket.

 

Workshops are free for performers and also open to the general public.  Attending a workshop will enable you attend and participate in the two BIG SING events (see program – public will require appropriate ticketing to attend BIG SING events)

 

We recommend the WEEKENDER PASS that enables access to all events at Busselton SongFest for just $55.00

“Why that Warm-up?” Workshop

followed by a little bit of a BIG SING!

with Director Louise Bell

Saturday 11 June at 0900 at the Esplanade Hotel

Louise, now Busselton based, is the director of popular ensemble New Rechoirments

If you’ve ever wanted to know which warm ups do what for your group, then this is the place for you! A mix of vocal and gentle physical warm ups to get your mind, body and voice ready to create wonderful music.  Once warmed we’ll all learn a fun song together for The Big Sing.’

Louise brings decades of music making, choir singing, educating and a couple of music qualifications to make this an engaging, informative session. Everyone is sure to walk away humming, moving and thinking how much their own choir will benefit from what they’ve learned.  This is not just for directors, but for any choir member. Come along, sing, laugh, move, create!
