A Handful of Harmonies is a hobby with a difference! The group gives women from 19 to 90+ the opportunity to share the joy and proven health benefits of singing with like-minded people in a fun and creative environment.
Weekly sessions, under the instruction of a highly enthusiastic and experienced Natural Voice Practitioner and registered British Voice Association teacher, will provide opportunities for you to sing in harmony, discover new techniques and to improve your musicality, understanding and appreciation of music. With your newly found confidence, you will tackle more complicated and challenging musical arrangements and enjoy hearing the finished result – just for pleasure!
Whilst we “work” hard these sessions are enjoyable social events. There is discipline and structure but also fun, laughter and a strong sense of teamwork as we rehearse songs from a variety of genres, performing new musical arrangements to suit a variety of tastes. No previous experience is required but enthusiasm is a must.
Weekly sessions, as well as a programme of holiday and "catch-up" workshops, are held every week for 90 minutes per week and timings and venues of these can be found in the locations section of the site. Unlike other choirs you are not committed to a particular day or time - you have the complete freedom to pick and choose.
With a variety of payment and membership options you can choose to do as much or as little as you like to suit you and your lifestyle. There is absolutely no requirement to perform although this is an option and full support and online resources are available at no extra cost to support your learning.
Please note that Registration for all classes begins fifteen minutes prior to the start of the session to ensure we are ready to warm-up on time and also to give you an opportunity to have some social time with your fellow singers.
