If you are looking for something special and a new experience, how about taking part in our Singing Weekend: Gospel Spirituals course at Farncombe Estate.
Taking place on the 10th -12th January, this course is an up-lifting experience, where not only will you learn new skills, but meet new people and have fun!
Explore the richness of the gospel choral sound and learn something about the music's historical context at the same time. Born out of the struggle and hardship of the slave trade in the Deep South of America, spirituals are work songs, protest and celebration songs of hope springing from despair.
During your time on the course, you will sing traditional and contemporary arrangements of popular spirituals, as well as some lesser-known songs. No previous singing experience or ability to read music notation is necessary.
