An informal and inclusive social singing workshop

Sat 29 June – 10.00 am
Hobart Town Hall
From $45

A fun, informal and inclusive session with amazing Tasmanian choir director Jane Christie-Johnston. 
Within minutes, you will become part of an a cappella choir in four-part harmony as you sing a mix of gospel, folk and more.  
This session is for people wanting to ‘have a crack’ at a cappella singing in a choir for the first time, or try a new style of singing, or you might just want a fantastic and relaxing social singing experience with no strings attached. Everything is taught by ear (no music reading or choir singing experience needed), and beginners are welcome. 

“Jane Christie-Johnston’s workshops are addictive. I keep coming back for more. Each workshop is different but the thing they all have in common is that they are uplifting and fun! Recommended to those seeking a positive mood altering experience!” Julie Dennis, previous workshop participant
