As part of the Festival activities, Barbershop Harmony Australia is offering a two-and-a-half hour harmony singing workshop free to the people of Hobart. Festival delegates are also encouraged to attend.
Date: 18 September 2019
Time: 2pm to 4:30pm
Venue: Derwent Room, Wrest Point Hotel, Sandy Bay
As a Workshop participant you will experience the joy of harmony singing led by a qualified team of educators from across Australia. You will learn a song in four-part harmony and be ready to perform it at the official Civic Welcome and Massed Sing to be held at 12.00pm on Friday 20th September in the Tasman Room, Wrest Point Hotel.
Several weeks prior to the workshop, you will receive a copy of the music and learning tracks to help you prepare. For locals, there will also be an earlier workshop in the weeks preceding the Festival.
Acclaimed as one of the most ancient forms of community building, singing in a group has been shown to improve health by reducing stress and boosting our immune response.
So, whether you're already an accomplished singer or have only ever sung in the shower, take the afternoon off work and come and join in the fun!
