Clown Choir Starts Back this Sunday

September 8, 2014

8 Sept 2014

We're delighted to welcome everyone back to Clown Choir this Sunday 14th September 2014, 11am-5pm. New Members are always welcome, so come along if you're interested and want to see what its all about.

Below is some information about the artistic focus of this year’s Clown Choir.

The artistic team has been streamlined and will be made up of:
Clown Director - Veronica Coburn
Choir Director - Debra Salem
Rehearsal Director - Louise Foxe

Veronica will lead all sessions, Debra will travel over to lead the choir musically every fourth week for the weekend sessions and Louise will take care of the notes on Mondays. 

Artistically, the choir is going to focus on building a musical repertoire suitable for performance in multiple contexts. They'll also look to build a repertoire of short clown sketches that can be interspersed with the songs. The idea is to have a store of adaptable material for use in any performance context. They will also investigate the idea of an original show for the choir built on participants' own experiences. This work will be of a more long term nature and will probably reach fruition in 2015.
