World Singing Day
This event took place at Ushaw in October 2019
The whole world is being asked to stretch its vocal chords on Saturday 19th October as part of a global sing-a-long called World Singing Day. To mark the occasion, we're teaming up with Ushaw in Durham to offer a free singing workshop.
The Singing Elf is bringing her unique brand of fun singing experiences for adults to Ushaw for the first time. Running from 12.30pm – 2pm, the workshop takes place in the beautiful surroundings of Ushaw College, and will feature a variety of songs from around the world. It is open to complete beginners, with no requirement to read music or previous experience of singing, except maybe in the shower!
As well as the singing workshop, the day will feature piano and organ recitals, and an opportunity for people to ‘come and play’ one of the many pianos located around the college. Participants are invited to make a day of it by dropping into Divines Café, which offers delicious hot and cold food in the Refectory, or Afternoon Tea.
World Singing Day workshop is free, singers are invited to pay what they feel at a collection at the end.
