We May Sing events for the Autumn term of 2022 have begun. After a Summer break we are so pleased to be back. The month of September brought us Lyndsey Scott & Maris Wood.
October is blessed to have Elizabeth Melvin for the first time and joining her is Jess Baker.
Join us for a collection of heartfelt songs for your nourishment and enjoyment hosted by Tembre.
Tembre will be hosting this online community from her home in Portugal.
All are welcome – All songs are taught by ear in a call and response method, no experience needed. All voices welcome.
As with the nature of online singing, we as song leaders wont be able to hear you singing, but we will bring harmonies galore for you to hear and breath in.
Each leader will be bring a mix of original compositions and community songs, sung many times and lived in the hearts of thousands.
We will not be able to sing all together, as participants will be muted during singing. But the melodies, harmonies and songs will be brought to your home for you to sing along with from the comfort of your home, garden, bath, lounge or kitchen!
All welcome, neighbours, family members. Or this may be a perfect time just for yourself. Grab a cup of tea and join us.
