50 of us turned out for a blistering hot day of song with Una May Olomolaiye. She led us through gospel, motown and African songs and by the time we were all up to speed the Clarke Community Centre on Herford Way, Burbage was vibrating to a fabulous sound. It was a scorching hot day and we were glad of a well ventilated space out of the direct sunlight.
Una May's arrangements are legendary on the Community Choir Circuit. They are not easy by any means but her musical ability carried us along and raised us to new level of singing. The workshop also provided an opportunity to learn some of the songs we will be singing with Leicester Amika Choir on 5th December 2015. The concert will feature a set by Harmonic Voices on their own, then a set by Leicester Amika on their own and finally a big sing when we all sing together (80+ voices!). NOT TO BE MISSED.
Big thank you to Una May, Pauline at the Centre and everyone who helped to make the day go so smoothly.
Roll on the autumn term which starts on 16th September!
Singers take a well earned tea break.....
