A singing workshop with Black Voices - an opportunity to learn songs and perform alongside this renowned group.
Formed in 1987 by Musical Director Carol Pemberton MBE, Black Voices has gained a reputation as Europe's finest female a cappella quintet. For over 25 years the group has captivated audiences with their singing and performances in the black oral tradition. Drawing inspiration from that rich tradition, Black Voices has developed a unique repertoire and arrangement of spirituals, traditional African, Caribbean and English folk songs, jazz, gospel, pop and reggae as well as a fusion of contemporary and classical styles that has earned them world wide recognition as a performance and teaching company.
Workshop participants will perform what they have learned in the workshop at the Ashmolean on the afternoon of the 22nd June - as part of Windrush Day programme, before joining Black Voices at a memorial and rememberance service on Sunday 23rd June. Please note-Workshop participants need to be available for the performance in Oxford on 23rd June.
