A North Yorkshire choir director who has successfully encouraged hundreds of reluctant adults to sing is to run a free workshop for children in Harrogate.
Rhiannon Gayle, whose dynamic and enthusiastic approach to amateur choral singing has led to the success of her venture Rock up and Sing, will host a choir experience for young people at Harrogate Music Centre on Saturday December 8.
Centre director Stephen Price said he hoped it would provide an opportunity for children who enjoy singing to try it out, have fun and meet new people.
Centre director Stephen Price:
Rhiannon has a huge amount of experience when it comes to encouraging the most reluctant and timid singers and has proved that singing in a group doesn’t have to be intimidating.
Singing is a fantastic way to develop not only musically, but socially. It can also be a brilliant way of growing in confidence and ability to express yourself and I know that Rhiannon is someone who can do this.
We hope lots of children will come along to the event, which will be held as part of our regular weekly Saturday morning music centre activities.
The free workshop starts at 9.30am and runs until 11am and although most participants are expected to be aged between ten and 13, Mr Price said older and younger children would also be welcome to attend.
Harrogate Music Centre meets at Harrogate high School and neighbouring St Robert’s Junior School. A tuck shop is available on site for music centre students and those attending the choir will be welcome to go there when the workshop ends and experience the wider world of Harrogate Music Centre.
