Learn to sing with a swing
Published 12/05/14



A JAZZ singer with an eclectic taste including Thirties’ Berlin cabaret and gypsy music will be leading a jazz choir workshop in Henley this summer.

Katya Gorrie is a vocal coach and runs several choirs in Bristol — when she is not touring with her band Moscow Drug Club.

The singer will be leading a four-day intensive workshop at Valley Road Primary School in July, billed as “A week of singing, creating and laughing you won’t forget”.

The good news is, everyone is welcome.

Organiser Liz Jones said: “There are no auditions. Everyone is welcome, from the experienced singer who wants to try something new to those who enjoyed singing at school but haven’t had the opportunity since.”


Singers will work on different styles of jazz, learning songs from the swing era, gospel and modern vocal jazz arrangements from artists such as the Andrews Sisters, Manhattan Transfer and Take Six. They will learn about rhythm, movement and vocal technique, although the main focus is on having fun. There will be a choir performance at the end of the workshop in the school’s main hall.

The 2014 Henley Jazz Choir Workshop is an add-on to the jazz instrumental workshop which was very successful last summer, and will run at the same time this year. Leading jazz musicians including virtuoso guitarist Denny Ilett, bass and guitar player Andy Crowdy and clarinet and sax player Thomas L’Etienne will coach adults with some experience of playing (beginner to intermediate).

The music will be tailored to the ability of the players.

There will be an instrumental performance on the Friday night.

The workshops take place from Monday, July 28 to Friday, August 1.

Places on the instrumental workshop are 295 and those on the vocal workshop are 245. To book contact Liz Jones by email at liz@ejahenley.co.uk or Carol Crowdy at carol@ace-lpm.com by June 15. For more information visit www.henleyjazzworkshop. moonfruit.com
