About The Event

Three stand-alone workshops with Fortismere Community Choir's Musical Director, Cathal Garvey. Singers of all abilities – whether you have sung in choirs before or whether you love singing but are new to choral singing - are invited to join us and enjoy discovering a wide range of pieces. There is no need to be able to read music or know the works before the day.

All music will be provided free on the day. Tea and coffee will be provided in the break (bring your own mug), and there will be another short break for lunch - please bring a packed lunch as there won't be time to run to the local shops!

Sunday 26th May 11.30 am - 4.30 pm (please note this is definitely a Sunday!)
