Brisbane City Sounds Chorus (BCS) wants women all over Brisbane to sing in 2018. The award-winning a cappella ensemble is encouraging women who enjoy singing to take part in a 4-week vocal education program in February and March. Participants will learn vocal skills, gain experience singing in four-part harmony, and have the chance to perform with BCS for a live audience at a finale event.
The vocal education program will be led by Musical Director Kelly Shepard, who recently moved to Brisbane from the USA. Kelly is a highly experienced music educator and an international-level barbershop singer, having placed third in the world on five occasions with his quartet, Metropolis. ‘As a 25+ year vocal music teacher, I’m so excited to be leading this group of ladies and to share with them the joy of singing and the excitement and genuine emotions that music can create!’ says Kelly.
Kelly encourages women to take part in the program regardless of their age, vocal range, sheet music-reading ability, or level of singing experience. ‘The start of the year is a great time to make the decision to start doing more things that make you happy. Our program offers an opportunity to get back into singing, or try something you haven’t explored before.’
The vocal education program will be held every Thursday night from 8th February to 1st March at the Lavalla Centre, 58 Fernberg Rd, Paddington. Registration is $100, which includes group vocal tuition, learning materials, and entry to the program’s finale event on Sunday 4th March, where participants will perform with BCS.
