The Joy of Singing with Pauline Down

06 Oct 2023—08 Oct 2023


Trigonos, Nantlle, Eryri (Snowdonia)

A nourishing weekend retreat for body, heart and soul, singing songs that celebrate Autumn’s glory, giving voice to embodied improvised singing and exploring resonance and vocal freedom indoors and outdoors.

We will begin each day with some fully embodied vocal health and freedom exercises designed to help singers find more resonance as they align body, breath and sound. We will then apply the energy that this gives us to singing short, uplifting, fabulous harmony songs. We’ll also play with structures and invitations that will take us effortlessly into collaborative group improvisation.
Warning: this playful way of weaving voices to create simple improvised song pieces, can become very addictive!

Some of the time we will be outside in the beautiful Trigonos grounds connecting our voices to nature. There will also be time to explore the grounds solo and to find quiet spots where you can touch down and come home to yourself.

The icing on the cake is that Trigonos is a stunning venue; the rooms and beds are very comfortable, the food is simply the best, the landscape is of course stunning and singing there is bliss.
