Stephen Sondheim and Morag McLaren
Singing Sondheim
1-Day Vocal Workshop with Morag McLaren
Saturday 4 March

After several of our supporters asked if  Morag McLaren would tailor a workshop for a small group to find out what it really requires of a singer to interpret and present the work of Stephen Sondheim her answer was an enthusiastic “Yes!”

With Morag's breadth of experience performing Sondheim repertoire (including A Little Night Music at National Theatre) and following the sell out success and positive response  our Weekend in the Country Music review during the 2016 Frome Festival we are delighted to announce our Creative Director has devised the workshop, “Singing Sondheim”. 

Participants are invited to bring a Sondheim song of their choice which will be explored within the workshop and presented informally to a small invited audience at the end of the day.

“Bit by bit, putting it together... Piece by piece, only way to make a work of art. Every moment makes a contribution, Every little detail plays a part. Having just the vision's no solution, Everything depends on execution, Putting it together, that's what counts.” Stephen Sondheim

* There may be a possibility to workshop duets depending on the field of applicants for the course. Please contact us directly to discuss.

Explore Your Voice at Cooper Hall, Frome

Each year The Cooper Hall Foundation offers an eclectic range of one-day  workshops for singers of all abilities. Based in the grounds of Selwood Manor, Cooper Hall is a bright, intimate performance space with a wonderful acoustic and beautiful piano.

All our tutors offer a broad depth of experience running choirs and workshops throughout the country and each brings a unique mix and blend of  songs and techniques to enable you to sing new songs as quickly as possible. Other than our “Going Solo” workshop, all songs are taught by ear, so there is no need to read music; making the workshop environment relaxed and accessible.

Treat yourself or someone you know who loves singing to come along and explore the voice through a range of genres. Discounts are available for booking more than one class, so it's a perfect way to banish the winter blues by having a monthly dose of spirit lifting and joyous singing in calm and surroundings.

All workshops days are fully inclusive of all refreshments throughout the day – teas, real coffee and delicious home baked cakes and a hot, home cooked lunch. Think of these as “singing pamper days” where all you have to do is come along and enjoy singing in our creative haven.
