Boys Only Vocal Workshop

By | Workshops

For the last 5 months Living Voice have been running vocal workshops at Beckton Globe Library for boys aged 10 – 18, or 10 – 16. The aim is to create a space where boys can feel empowered, connected, safe, grow in confidence and enjoy a wide range of music making and performing opportunities.

A number of our boys have been attending the workshop and really enjoying themselves. To showcase what the boys had achieved so far we held a special workshop for all the boys in Y5 & 6 to come together. The year groups engaged in vocal warm up activities and watched as some of their classmates stepped forward and performed some of the pieces they have been learning. They ended singing a rendition of “Something inside so strong.” You can have a listen to a snippet below; it is both inspiring and powerful.

The Boys Only Workshops run every Wednesday 3:30-5:00 at the Beckton Globe Library.

 

Opera Up Close workshops at Gallions

By | Workshops

 

Last month Opera Up Close took over the Gallions Musicianship room for a day of workshops with our lovely reception children. Opera Up Close are working with Gallions as they continue to develop a new opera for 3-5 year olds based on the Jill Murphy classic “Peace at Last”. Members of the cast and creative team have led workshops alongside Gallions EYFS music lead Aimme Gardner with the children being wowed by the sights and sounds of a Bass clarinet and Harp as well as engaging with Opera singers and the story.

The workshops have been a great success to date and all bodes well for July when the Opera will premier at The Gallions Arts Festival.
