Hull Members of the amazing Gay Abandon (West Yorkshire’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans choir) and Sunday Boys (Manchester’s inclusive choir for men) combine forces for a workshop day with members of Hull Rainbow Choir, and anyone from the LGBT+ community who would like to come along and sing.
The day will be led by choir leaders Michael Betteridge and Jane Edwardson, with the workshop promoting singing to the LGBT+ community in Hull, with a view to support and expand the Rainbow Choir in Hull.
The workshop is about having fun and singing together, with plans to round off the day with a series of mini performances around key venues in the City.
All songs will be taught by ear – there is no need to read music, and no pressure to perform. Lunch is not provided – please be prepared to make your own arrangements.
To book your place on this free workshop day please contact CityArtsEnquiries@hullcc.gov.uk
Hull's Albemarle Music Centre accommodates a performance area which seats 250 people as well as rehearsal and teaching rooms for 15 Hull musical ensembles ranging from youth orchestras and brass bands to jazz groups and choirs. Built for the city by the developers of the St Stephen's scheme, it replaces the original Albemarle Music Centre which was demolished to make way for the £200m shopping, hotel and leisure complex. The new Albermarle Music Centre opened in October 2007, providing an exciting new addition to the city that has been welcomed by more than 600 young Hull musicians as a hub of musical activity and education.
