Tuesday 26th and Thursday 28th August 2014
- Are you aged between 7 and 11?
- Do you enjoy singing?
- Are you looking for something to do during the summer holiday?
If your answer to both of these questions is ‘Yes!’ then come along to our half-term singing mornings on Tuesday 26th and Thursday 28th August, 10 am – 12 noon in St Stephen’s Church. We’ll be singing lots of different songs and there will be opportunity to make new friends. Refreshments will be available too so that your voices don’t get too tired!
The two mornings will be led by Stephen Barker. Steve is Organist and Choirmaster at St Stephen’s Church, and Head of Music at a school in Folkestone. He has worked with choirs of all ages and has taken the choir of St Stephen’s to sing in cathedrals throughout the south and south-east, and to Westminster Abbey; they have also performed in Rheims, France. You can find out more about Steve by visiting his website: www.sbarker.net
There will be several other adults supervising during the sessions, and everyone involved holds appropriate CRB/DBS clearance.
Frequently asked questions
Do I have to have musical experience to come along?
No. We welcome everyone whatever experience of singing you already have – whether that’s a lot or nothing at all! It’s fine if you’re a complete beginner – but it helps if you enjoy music and want to sing!
Do I have to do both days?
While the two days will follow on from each other, picking up some of the music that we started one day on the next, it doesn’t matter if you can only make one day – we think that you’ll still have a great time!
Do I have to pay?
No! There is no charge for the singing mornings – all that we ask you bring with you is a completed consent form (see below).
Do I have to come with an adult?
Adults are welcome to stay for the duration of the sessions if you wish, or you are welcome to leave your children with us and pick them up at midday. Don’t forget to bring the completed consent form with you though (see below).
Do I have to have been to church before?
No. There is no requirement to be a practising Christian to come along – we welcome children of all backgrounds.
