Cullompton, Devon workshop and performance

Pete Churchill & The London Vocal Project return to Cullompton this summer for another singing workshop and evening performance. 

Led by international choral director and educator, Pete Churchill, this half-day workshop is supported by members of the London Vocal Project. Together, Pete and LVP will create a positive learning environment for you to explore singing by ear and learning new repertoire quickly and with attention to groove, whilst giving you tools for developing individual and collective sound. You will be guided through fundamental techniques of groove-based group singing, and encouraged to sing out and be proud!

These workshops offer a fun and supportive environment for vocalists of all ages and abilities. Music is taught ‘by ear’, enabling the singers to focus on sound production and listening skills whilst creating a level platform for all attendees, regardless of their ability to read written notation.

The workshop will take place between 1.30 and 5.30. The London Vocal Project will be performing for you that evening at 7pm at the same venue. Workshop attendees will be invited to join us to perform the songs learned in the afternoon workshop. This ticket also admits the workshop attendee to the evening concert.
