Faithspace

I’m really excited to be running a series of workshops in 2024, which I’ve named ‘Saturday Sings’. For each workshop, I’ve invited a fantastic guest choir composer, and we will take it in turns to teach our own original SATB harmony songs. Who knows, you could be the first group of singers to ever sing this material!

Saturday Sings 2024 Series:

  •  23rd March – Helen Chadwick & me
  • 11th May – Katy Rose Bennett & me
  • 15th June – Anna Tabbush & me
  • 13th July – Emily Roblyn & me
  • 12th Oct – Ben See & me
  • 16th Nov – Helen Yeomans & me

PRICE? £45 standard rate, inc lunch, teas, coffees and cakes. (Low Income/Higher Earner options available).

All are welcome! We are Natural Voice Network leaders and all songs will taught by ear so there is no need to read music.

**Please note – All workshop orders placed before 18th June will not incur any payment processing fees (as I have been given an offer by the provider). After this date all orders will have a 3.9% payment processing fee added at checkout (eg £1.75/ £45 General ticket).**

11th May 2024 –  Rosie Sleightholme & Katy Bennett
For the second workshop in our Saturday Sings series, I have the wonderful Katy Rose Bennett as guest composer.

About Katy:
Katy Rose Bennett is a songwriter, choir composer, choir leader, community musician and multi-instrumentalist based in Birmingham.
She has been running community choirs and workshops in her adopted home of Birmingham for the last 15 years. In 2024 Katy will be publishing her first book of a cappella songs for community choirs.

As a singer songwriter for over 20 years, Katy has been creating her earthy, intimate folk music, telling stories of love, despair, connection and community.

In September 2021, Katy released her 7th album, Alone On A Hill: a beautiful, emotionally raw yet ultimately joyful collection of multi-layered, a cappella vocal songs, with influences ranging from Bobby McFerrin, Bjork and Brian Wilson.
She empowers audiences and choir members alike to be emotionally open by sharing the strength in vulnerability, through the vessel of song.
