Malvern Male Voice Choir and The Choirs of Holy Trinity Church, Malvern are presenting a special free event on the afternoon of
Saturday 4 March, from 2.30 to 4.30pm
“Find Your Voice” – A singing workshop for men and women and for all ages, led by Douglas V Watts, Voice Practitioner, Singer & Conductor from Bristol, at Holy Trinity Church Hall, Link Top, Worcester Road, Malvern WR14 1NY
The event includes performances by Malvern Male Voice Choir and the Choirs of Holy Trinity.
Douglas Watts originally hails from Ledbury; he was an MMVC member for a few years, studied music at Hereford Sixth Form College and Bristol University, having been a student of Charles Pavey, the musical director of both the MMVC and the Holy Trinity Choirs.
Charles commented: “It is a real privilege to have Douglas returning to Malvern to lead an imaginative event like this. He has tremendous energy, enthusiasm and patience; his engaging approach, in which everything is done by ear, helps those who probably don’t read music to enjoy their singing and the harmonies that come out of it”.
Douglas is a huge believer in the benefits of singing for wellbeing, and encourages vocal techniques to be used in everyday life, rooted in confidence, stability and vocal health. He teaches a huge variety of types of music, including three and four part harmony pieces, and ranging from 1920s Swing to modern rock and pop.
The free admission for the event includes refreshments; all ages, male and female are encouraged to come along if you are interested in finding your voice !
