Singing Together

Vetta Wise &
Becky Moseley-Morgan

24th -29th May 2021

Tips and techniques to equip the ensemble singer.

Singing together gets to the heart of our humanity and our souls. Singing together in perfect
harmony can enrich our lives. Singing together benefits us emotionally, physically and
socially. Mastery of new skills will give you a great sense of achievement, whilst at the same
time producing endorphins and giving you a wonderful sense of well-being.
Good ensemble singing requires special skills, and this course aims to teach singers these
skills which are essential for ensemble singing. Through useful exercises and guided sessions
with these two experienced vocal and choral specialists, and through sharing the joy of
singing together, you will learn to blend your voices, to shape the colours and texture of the
music, to increase your awareness of the music  and each other,  and you will learn new
techniques essential for good vocal production.
