Go along and try some gospel singing! BOOKS Singing workshop.

IF YOU'VE never sung before or haven't sung for a long time now's your chance.

Gospel music is a great way to get started start as the music is easy to learn by ear. And it's also a great opportunity to experience the thrill of being part of a big choral sound where everyone's voices blend and singers help each other along.

You can try it for yourself next week at a workshop in Huddersfield run by Kirklees Council in partnership with Intercomm Back A Yard Arts Production.

This two-day event with two workshops is led by experienced gospel musical choir director Edwin Baker, with a public performance.

The Let's Sing Gospel workshops will be held on Wednesday, January 21 at the Hudawi Centre on Great Northern Street, Hilllhouse.

There will be a high school workshop (for singers aged 12-16) from lpm to 3pm and an adult choir workshop (for those aged 17 and over) from 6pm until 9pm.

Singers will learn vocal technique, harmony singing and the gospel performance style. There's no music reading ability required; just enthusiasm and a desire to make some noise!

The workshops will improve vocal skills, create that special gospel sound and at the same time teach movement to the music. They will offer a variety of music, ranging from traditional spiritual to more contemporary black gospel The two choirs will come together for a public performance at St Paul's Hall on Queensgate at 7pm on Saturday, January 24 for a community choir concert.Tickets are pounds 3 (pounds 1 concessions)

There is a limited number of spaces for the workshops. Book via Edwin Baker on 07855 491457 or George Matheson on 01484 416494 (email: george.matheson@kirklees.gov.uk)
