A Singing Creative
Helen loves to do some of her composition work with singers in person rather than alone at the piano, so as to try out ideas and see how to develop them within a live experience – like being in rehearsal. Sometimes that is an evening at her house, sometimes weeks with actors, this time it’s this weekend at Hill Cottage.
Helen will arrive with new song ideas and fragments to explore which we will develop over the weekend. Our sessions will be playful and concentrated, light-hearted and heartfelt, personal and universal, simple and patterned. All this will happen within the beautiful and welcoming setting of Hill Cottage where there will be time for walks and being in nature, and where we are supported by tasty nourishing food.
There is no need to read music, only to hold a part on your own and sing in tune. We will sometimes use scores as guides.
For this unique and rich experience to work, we ask that you are able to commit to getting to Hill Cottage Retreat Centre by 5.00 pm on Friday until Sunday at 4.00 pm.
