Thursday Jan 29th, Feb 26th , Mar 19th
This week we are delighted to welcome Charles to lead our workshop. Charles has been associated with Hull Community Voices for a number of years. Come and join us.
Charles is a local choir leader. His work is with all age ranges and has done some ground breaking and inspirational sessions in residential homes. Last year you may have seen him at the Freedom Festival organising Carnival arts. We love having Charles with us once a month. We always have great fun. His sessions are a great mix of lively ditties and harmonic tuneful melodies.
Ilina Ivancheva Thursday February 5th and 12th
We are excited that Ilina has joined Hull Community Voices as a participant. Now she will also be leading some sessions for us. She has promised us Japanese as well as her native Bulgarian. Ilina is an accomplished musician who has sung all her life and travelled extensively with her music. She writes
'I was born in Sofia, Bulgaria, in 1986. My mum says that at the moment of my birth I started crying when I was not yet even all out in the world, and the doctor said: “Let's see if you are you a male or a female singer.” So, here I am, a female one.
Today I am back in Hull, doing a part-time PhD on the effect of the Feldenkrais Method on singing and generally approaching singing through developing awareness of our bodies. I also sing in the University Chapel Choir and Early Music Ensemble. My interest in singing as a natural expression of what we are brought me to the Natural Voice Network where I met some wonderful and inspiring people.'
