Harmony Singing, Corrina Hewat

April 1@11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Corrina has a new song she would like to bring to the Harmony Singing this year. As it has never been performed a cappella before, the Harp Festival singers will be the first. It will be taught by ear with words available, and possibly even the dots to take away! There’s no need to worry that you may not be a ‘singer’; bring your voice in whatever shape it is in plus a smile and a willingness to learn – that’s all you need. An hour of harmony unfolding in front of you. Come and add your voice to the welcoming group.
