The Lighter Side Choral Course

Susan Hollingworth assisted by Tim Uglow

Yet another wild selection of foot stomping fun pieces with plenty of pure sentimental nostalgia to keep emotions balanced. Several pieces could challenge the hardiest regular but enough of the repertoire is very approachable to ensure our concert will be the success we have come to expect and enjoy. 

Be prepared to work hard! This course is not for the timid conservative nor the enthusiastic“sing-along”; a good ear and a secure sense of rhythm are essential and a loud costume for the concert will help!

Where possible pre-preparation of the music is advisable. However the music will be on sale in the school music shop and if not already done so should be acquired before the first session.
