About

From the organiser:

PLEASE NOTE: WE EXPECT TICKETS FOR TO RUN OUT SHORTLY. PLEASE *DO* SIGN UP TO THE WAITING LIST IF YOU ARE INTERESTED BUT THERE ARE NO TICKETS AVAILABLE, AS WE MAY LOOK FOR A LARGER VENUE FOR PART OF THE EVENT.

Stephen Taberner is a NZ-born and Australian-based singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and conductor, probably best known for his leadership of the Spooky Men's Chorale, as well as his work with choirs and singing workshops.

In the magnificent Holywell Music Room on Sunday 27th November 22, Stephen will teach a handful of beautiful, powerful and poignant Ukrainian songs in harmony. The workshop is open to absolutely everyone, and there's no need to read music - all songs and parts will be taught using a 'listen and repeat' approach.

The workshop will run from 1pm until 5.30 (with breaks). Participants can then either return home, or choose to stay on for a short concert in the Holywell Music Room, starting at 7.30pm. This will feature an opportunity to perform the songs learned during the afternoon, alongside music from Stephen and a selection of superb local artists including Tamara Parsons-Baker, The Jolly Grogsters, Rholben, and more TBC.

The workshop and the gig are 'free', in the sense that no charge will be made for tickets or attendance. However, participants are very strongly encouraged to donate generously to either our suggestion - https://donate.redcross.org.uk/appeal/ukraine-crisis-appeal - or a charity of their choice benefitting Ukraine.
