Gospel Sing For The Gambia
Gospel singing legend, Daniel Thomas, returns to Bognor Regis for a one day workshop on Saturday 20th February.
Spend a day singing the repertoire of some of Britain’s top Gospel music composers
led by the artistes themselves!
Following the success of last year, world class vocal coach Daniel Thomas is set to return to Bognor for a one day Gospel singing masterclass. The former Choral Director for the London Community Gospel Choir has had an enviable career, from performing to audiences which include Nelson Mandela and Prince Charles, appearing in West End Musical Godspell to coaching popstars including Girls Aloud, Javine and Michelle Gayle, to name but a few.
The Gospel Choir Workshop which took place for the first time in May 2009 is organised by British Gospel Arts and the local charity, Nyodema, who combine their passion for world music with their commitment to fighting poverty in The Gambia, West Africa.
Kathryn Burrington, Chairman of Nyodema, commented ‘We are truly privileged to have someone like Daniel involved. He is the most outstanding vocal coach imaginable and the results last time were amazing! People rarely get the chance to work with someone of this calibre and after the wonderful day we had last year, this is bound to be a popular event, so please do book early.’
The workshop will take place at the Regis School of Music in Sudley Road, Bognor from 11a.m. – 4.30p.m, followed by a showcase where the choir can demonstrate their new Gospel talents. Everyone is welcome to participate, whether you are an experienced singer or complete novice. Not only will you be trained in new skills by the best in his field, you will also have fun, make friends and raise money for a very worthy cause!
The cost to take part in the workshop starts from just £15 for children and £25 for adults – group discounts are also available. All profits will go to Nyodema’s health and education projects in The Gambia. To book your place please visit www.britishgospelarts.com
