(Musical Director, Sing For Your Life! Choir

The Mid-Summer Sing is primarily an opportunity for members of the Sing For Your Life! Choir to get together during the summer and fend off those withdrawal symptoms (it’s a long summer with no choir!) … and THE EVENT IS ALSO OPEN TO ANYONE ELSE who loves to sing and would like to join in a big day of great harmonies.

Singers of all levels of experience (including beginners) are welcome – it’s a great chance to sing in a supportive, friendly environment, and if you enjoy the workshop you’re welcome to join the SFYL! Choir when the 2018 ‘choir year’ starts in March.

The Mid-Summer Sing will feature a cappella songs from the Sing For Your Life! Choir ‘back catalogue’, taught by local choir director Jane Christie-Johnston. There is no religious element to the workshop – but there will be gospel songs in the program, because they’re great fun, they’re relatively easy to learn and they have fantastic harmonies. Male and female singers of all ages are welcome – a minimum age of 12 years is recommended but younger singers who are keen to participate will also be welcomed to the group. There is no requirement to read music – all songs are taught by ear in three and four part harmony.
