Songs at Sunrise with Kate Harwood

Sun 28 - Sat 10 Aug 2019

Songs at Sunrise: a gentle musical introduction to the day. 

Evening Workshops: Exploring Harmony, Exploring Rhythm, Exploring Lyrics and Melody

How do songs move us?  What are their key components and why do they sometimes create magic when in combination?  

During these vocal workshops, we will explore classic songs from the fifties to present day and discover the musical devices within them.

Singers will work as an ensemble, with opportunities for soloists to take to the spotlight.

Kate will be there to encourage participants to sing freely and without inhibition, with the SOUL goal of feeling good!

Learn a little something about how songs use rhythm, harmony, melody and lyrics to paint sonic pictures, whilst singing in a fun environment.
