Inverurie Choral Society is delighted to host its 2nd Village Carols Workshop, at St Mary's Church Centre, Inverurie, on Saturday 4 November 2017, with registration from 1.15pm for Workshop 2 to 5pm. The Workshop will be led again by Professor Emeritus Ian Russell.  Ian is the former Director of Aberdeen University’s esteemed Elphinstone Institute and was awarded the Points of Light Honour on 23 December 2016 by Prime Minister Theresa May, for his work re-discovering and supporting traditional carols, and charity fundraising.

 

The Village Carols Workshop is open to both singers and instrumentalists (strings & woodwind), with sheet music/words for the traditional carols provided.  It will help participants learn the singing parts of eight more favourite carols from village traditions in South Yorkshire and the Peak District, and instrumentalists will be able to learn to play the accompaniments in parts (strings/woodwind). No special expertise is required, just enthusiasm for the carols and a willingness to join in. All the carols will be pitched to fall within the range of normal voices, as in the pubs where many of these traditions thrive. Based on the manuscripts used by village carol bands, the arrangements have been specially prepared and edited by Ian and are taken from The Sheffield Book of Village Carols and The Derbyshire Book of Village Carols.

Cost:           Adults (unitary price) £10        Full time Students £5

The cost includes words and music for all participants, plus tea/coffee at the break.

To book your place in advance, please complete and return the form with cheque for payment to ICS to arrive by Wednesday 25 October 2017. All details will be on the downloadable link
