Just a quick update as I realised I hadn't written one of these for a while.....busy busy as always, and June looks to be more hectic than ever! So for now, just a quick rundown of where you can hear me perform, or sing with me, this coming month.
I have just finished a whole day of in person singing with York youngsters, which was fantastic! So lovely to sing with these young people in person, some of whom I had only worked with previously online. Check out the York Music Hub social media for pictures of the day.......here.
COMMUNITY SINGERS - OUTSIDE AND ONLINE!
June brings the return of outdoor/online sessions for my Wednesday community singers. I can't wait to see them all and am just hoping for good weather as the government restrictions do not allow for more than 6 singers to shelter inside. Quite ridiculous when you consider what is allowed to go on. If you agree, please sign this petition.
I have a lovely group signed up for Community Singers, but I have a few spaces if anyone else wants to join in, either outside(in Easingwold) or online(from anywhere!) 4 Wednesday evenings from 9th June, 7pm, £20. Get in touch if you fancy joining us!
SINGING FOR ALL...online for now
Singing for all continues online for now, with Mondays on YouTube and zoom on Tuesdays at 11am continuing from 7th/8th June. All are welcome to join us for an hour of informal singing and chat - please get in touch if you would like to take part. I am looking at some options for possibly getting together in July "in real life" but it will depend on restrictions and how people feel.
fields and lanes - live At The Mill, 26th June
Mick and I are delighted to be performing fields and lanes live at Stillington Mill as part of the "Summer at the mill" programme of music and theatre. The setting is absolutely beautful and tickets are available here.
I am delighted to be involved in a 2 week trial of sessions aimed at the more mature generations, run by an organisaation called SAGESTREAM in the USA. I will be performing a session on Monday 28th June in the evening (UK time) , live from the NAAP Facebook page. See more information here....
LIVE IN EASINGWOLD MARKETPLACE
The first Saturday in July, I am performing LIVE in Easingwold Marketplace as part of their Summer of Music plans. The town council has arranged a wide selection of musicians to come and busk in the centre of town, for the enjoyment of those sitting outside at cafes or just walking by, and it is my turn on SATURDAY 3RD JULY. So do pop by between 1pm and 3pm, I have as always a wide selection of songs for everyone to enjoy. Whether I will be allowed to encourage audience participation by then is not clear.....maybe humming!
Alongside all this, I am continuing with all my other activities : my one to one students, York Military Wives Choir (again, weather permitting!), teaching music at Wigginton Primary, and now and again even seeing my family! Thanks for reading folks. This was meant to be a simple list of dates but, as always, brevity is not my forte.
Hope to sing for/with you soon,
PS Here's me teaching my latest composition to a choir in Australia!
