“As the founder of Robertsbridge Community Choir (RoCoCo) Carol made a welcome return bringing her inspiring and joyful choir leading skills, crafting our voices through layers of harmonies to produce a most satisfying rendition of a couple of her own songs. A great workshop from a talented choir leader and song writer. Thank you Carol!”
I’m delighted to be teaching my first singing workshop in 4 years next Saturday October 13th It’s being hosted by RoCoCo – Robertsbridge Community which I set up 17 years ago (but which I led for just 2 years). It’s taking place between 2 pm and 5 pm at the Robertsbridge Club adjacent to the Station Rd car park. I will be teaching my own compositions influenced by my love of folk, blues, jazz, African and gospel music. The cost of the afternoon is just £5 (bargain). Singers of all abilities are welcome and there is no pressure to become a member of RoCoCo after the workshop, although if you did you would be most welcome!
