Inspirational voices from around the world will be coming together in Lincolnshire this October to share international songs and musicality as part of a fantastic new project provided by British Council and soundLINCS.
Lincolnshire is delighted to welcome World Voice Master Trainers from Ethiopia and Jordan, who will be working alongside our own UK-based Vocal Leaders to offer an unmissable opportunity for singing leaders, music teachers, vocalists, choir members and music facilitators alike.
On Sunday 15th October from 10am – 3pm at the Myle Cross Centre in Lincoln, a free Vocal Workshop Day is taking place offering a unique and lively range of repertoire and techniques that will provide invaluable experience for anyone involved in singing.
Zeny Zerfu Ethiopian Master Trainer will be sharing knowledge and cultural repertoire alongside Jordanian Master Trainer Sahar Khalifeh who is a professional singer, percussionist, actress, and music therapist with over 30 years’ experience in the music industry.
soundLINCS are also delighted that singer/songwriter, World Voice Vocal Leader and acclaimed Musical Director Jane Wheeler will also be leading part of the day, with a session focusing on using world songs in the classroom in the afternoon.
During their visit the Master Trainers will also be working with staff and pupils from several schools spanning the County. World Voice 2017 brings together singing professionals and World Voice Master Trainers from 17 different countries, to share songs and celebrate the power of singing.
World Voice is an international network of professionals coming together to ensure all children and young people across the world have access to singing education of the highest quality.
Cathy Graham, British Council Director Music, said: “World Voice continues to amaze me with its ability to transform the atmosphere of a classroom, for teachers and children, wherever it goes around the world. I’m sure everyone that takes part in this latest residency will enjoy experiencing first hand those same transformative effects and will take away not only some new musical ideas but also an experience of another culture through singing.”
The Vocal Workshop Day is completely free to attend and places are limited! To secure your place please contact soundLINCS on 01522 510073 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
