Singing workshop is a hit

LEARNING three new songs in one day, and then performing them on stage, was a great achievement for ladies who attended a workshop run by Avon Harmony Chorus.

LEARNING three new songs in one day, and then performing them on stage, was a great achievement for ladies who attended a workshop run by Avon Harmony Chorus.
With several having not sung since their school days, the women were led through a series of warm-up exercises by musical director Alex de Bruin.
The new songs were learned in four part harmony, alongside members of the chorus music team.
In the evening, the women performed on stage at Alma Church in Clifton with the rest of the chorus.
This was the second such workshop run by Avon Harmony, and there are plans for more in the coming year.
Jackie Boffin said: "The chorus is hoping to see several of those who came to the workshop joining us for rehearsals in January at Fairfield High School, Horfield.
"Visitors, both experienced singers and novices, are always welcome to come along and enjoy an evening of singing with, and listening to, the chorus any Thursday." 
Avon Harmony is a chorus of women, of all ages, who sing acapella in barbershop-style, four part, close harmony. Formed in 1975, the group has been formerly known as Western Connection, and The Avonbelles, and has been singing in the Bristol area for almost forty years.
