Workshop with Val Whitlock


On Saturday afternoon, Val Whitlock returned for a second time to lead a singing workshop with about 30 members of the Choir. The afternoon began with warm-up exercises and techniques to improve our vocal tone and diction. The next session concentrated on songs from our current repertoire where Val helped “fix” areas such as timing, diction and performance. Finally, the choir sang 5 songs and Val gave helpful critique – mostly positive, but also suggesting areas to be worked on.

Val brings enthusiasm and vitality, much experience and knowledge. She is encouraging, inspiring and has a great sense of humour. The afternoon was hard work, great fun and passed much too quickly. Thank you so much, Val and also Michael and Gill.

Oh! And the tea and cakes were lovely, too!
