Come and sing in the gospel style, learning 'Oceans' by Hillsong, and 'Thriller' by Michael Jackson in harmony!
Saturday 24th October
St Matthew's Church Wimbledon,
All singers are welcome
This 'Gospel Thriller' workshop is going to be so much fun!
Join us this October in Wimbledon, South West London, where we'll be singing gospel music arranged for us by Get Gospel, the BBC Gospel Choir of the Year Finalists, and a classic Halloween track, Thriller, by Michael Jackson. Expect to be entertained, challenged and enthused by Jim's excellent teaching. I know he is particularly looking forward to this one!
You can listen to 'Oceans' being sung in a gospel style here!
Both songs will be taught in three or four part harmony, and in case you're concerned, there won't be any dance moves!
We're very pleased to announce that members of Get Gospel will be joining us on the day to sing live (perhaps take part?) and offer tips for singing in the gospel style. Plus, Jim will make a recording of our singing at the end of the day for you to enjoy as a personal souvenir.
Children £20 (under 15)
