Singing and Imagination
Friday 3 – Sunday 5 October 2014
Course No. 3111
Accompanist: Marion Lea
Solo Study Course
Singing is an activity first and foremost of the imagination, of us being alive imaginatively to the music, the drama and the poetry.
We will work to try to ‘hear’ the sounds in our imagination before we sing, and anticipate how the resonance will ‘feel’ to keep us engaged when not actively singing. Bring three pieces in English and one ‘prop’ to help stimulate your imagination.
All courses are held at Jackdaws in the village of Great Elm, a small village to the west of Frome in Somerset, roughly 30 minutes drive from Bath. Frome Train station is roughly 2.5 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.
