Small World : Big Sing

A Zoom singing festival Aug 29th-31st with

Jane Coker in Australia

and Val Regan in the U.K.

This is a unique opportunity to work with two of the most experienced community singing leaders around. We may not be able to sing together as we do in the real world but via Zoom we can still explore and develop our voices, learn new songs and meet singers from across the globe. So scroll down to see the range of workshops on offer.

You can book individual workshops at a cost of £6 / $12 each or buy a festival pass which covers all the workshops for £30 / $60

In addition to the workshops, there will time each day to meet other singers taking part by hanging out in the virtual “Festival Tent”

Please email jane.coker@bigpond.com with your choice of either individual workshops, quoting the workshop numbers or a festival pass

You will receive a confirmation email with details of how to pay
