Singing Retreat

 

 

        

Escape to the country and sing your heart out with award winning conductor Hannah Brine

 

Choral Conductor Hannah Brine is hosting two countryside singing retreats this year (Essex –  1st-3rd June & Stourbridge 30th August – 2nd September) and we wondered if any of your choir members or students would be interested in coming along?

 

“Hannah’s singing retreat is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before! A compact, intense treat of beautiful songs and awesome people, in a setting close to nature with the inspiration of fresh air and countryside. It’s an amazing way to re-set your soul and feel invigorated by learning wonderful music and singing together with special people.”

Participant – Retreat 2017

 

To say thank you for referring choir members to the retreats, we will give you £20 for every member of your choir or one of your students that attends the retreat (payable to you in June/September). Choir members must make it clear when they sign up that they heard about the retreat from your choir/organisation.

 

You can read more about the retreats (which include sessions on vocal technique as well as lots of opportunities to sing in harmony and generally have fun in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere) here: http://hannahbrine.co.uk/singing-retreat/. We’d be grateful if you could share the attached flyer with your choir members or let them know about the retreat in rehearsals please? I can also send you paper flyers if you prefer, do let me know on pa@hannahbrine.co.uk if so.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions – we’d be happy to help. Thank you for your support and have a great week.
