Description

This is your chance to sing with the Heart & Soul Swing Band at the second event working towards their Community Gospel Choir Programme with a day of musical enjoyment and discovery.

Come along to St John's Parish Church in Hamilton Town Centre and enjoy singing and swinging in the company of the Church of Scotland's own big band.

From 11am to 1pm we will focus on warming up before exploring the basics of gospel singing, then from 2pm to 4pm the emphasis will be on learning some really great swing numbers, both accompanied and a cappella, from different parts of the world. Tuition will be given by two experts in the field of jazz, who are committed to making great music both fun and accessible:

  • Richard Michael, acclaimed jazz pianist, arranger and educator; and

  • Eliot Murray, band leader, singer, multi-instrumentalist and jazz tutor.

This event is open to all ages and abilities - and don't worry if you can't read music or have no church connection. Everyone is welcome!

All you need to bring are your voice, your packed lunch (we'll provide drinks and nibbles) and your aim to have a great time in the company of a 20-piece jazz band.

And best of all, admission is free!

Space is limited, so register now and we'll look forward to seeing you in March for a wonderful day of singing and swinging! Parking is available in the multi-story car park on Duke Street next to St John's Parish Church

"Sing with the Swing Band" is generously sponsored by the Church of Scotland's Go For It Fund - funding change in church and community
