Singing Workshop at Ansells Farm, 2nd April 2016: “The flowers that bloom in the spring, tra la, breathe promise of merry sunshine…”

So sings Nanki Poo in The Mikado, and this gave us the idea that floral felicity and burgeoning buds would make a very good theme for our spring Song Day at Ansells. The vocal repertoire is full of flowers – lilies, violets, roses with and without thorns, to name but a few – and if you stretch the imagination to include other plants and trees too – well, where to start? Even if by April this year all the daffodils will be over, and we’ll have reached Storm Zoe in the extreme weather league, it’s still a wonderful time of year and has inspired poets and composers from Chaucer to Cole Porter. Why not make a day of singing and study at Ansells one of your post-Easter treats?

As always, a whole day workshop for singers 9.45 -5pm, including the services of our accompanist. 2 course lunch with wine, coffee and tea breaks with homemade cakes.

Price £110
