A choral workshop With Rachel Hore: 16 – 23 Nov

per person

A glorious week of choral singing in the unique surrounds of a Pacific paradise.

We’re delighted to welcome Rachel Hore back to Fiji. After a 5 year break, she’s coming back to the place that gave her and her choir so much pleasure, introduced  new singing experiences and forged many new friendships.

Her Choral workshop in Fiji is a joyous week in a beautiful location: a feast of workshops wrapped up in a holiday in Fiji. In the mornings, everyone comes together to learn and practice songs in 3 and 4 part harmony, singing from Rachel’s collection of contemporary Australian, gospel and world music songs. In the afternoons, the choir spends time learning Fijian songs and singing with a Fijian village choir.

It’s a time when people form wonderful friendships both within the group and with the Fijians, and revel in the blissful release that singing brings. And as well as singing, there’s also time to snorkel on the coral reef, swim in the pool – or just relax and read a book.
