Fancy taking your voice on a singing safari in 2018?

Do you love to sing, but don’t want too much commitment? Then come on a Singing Safari! Build a brand new choir from scratch over six Thursday evenings to perform for one night only in Woodbridge on Saturday 24th March. Everyone is welcome whether you’ve only ever sung in the bath or are a regular choir member.

There are no auditions, no sheet music, and no solo singing. Local choirmaster Chris Rowbury will have you rolling in the aisles with his anarchic brand of humour and raising the rafters with wonderful harmonies.

Take your voice on a Singing Safari – an imaginary journey across the globe to collect exotic songs from cultures where singing comes as naturally as speaking. Chris teaches all the songs by ear and in glorious harmony without an instrument or backing track in sight.

The Singing Safari sets off on Thursday 15th February at 7.30pm at Woodbridge Methodist Church. The group will then share the songs they’ve learnt in a performance on Saturday 24th March at St. Mary’s Church, Woodbridge where they will be joined by the vocal ensemble Scunsulata from Norfolk. There will be a small charge of £35 for the whole series of workshops, final rehearsal and performance. You can try out the first rehearsal free to see if you like it before paying for the six sessions.

The Singing Safari is open to anyone from 16 to 80. No experience is required as all songs will be taught by ear in the traditional way. Let’s get Woodbridge singing – the more the merrier!

Chris Rowbury has 30 years’ experience as a patient, charismatic teacher with a relaxed style laced with plenty of humour. Based in Woodbridge, he founded the local community choir The OK Chorale in 2011. Chris will get you singing in wonderful harmony in a matter of minutes!
