Clare Drury, with the support of members of Hull’s Heartsong and Saturday Sing groups bring you the Ama Hera experience – a singing workshop exploring harmony in a fun and relaxed environment.
Clare has over 10 years experience of running a capella singing groups with harmony at their heart. Join Clare for an inclusive and welcoming workshop taster for singers of all abilities. One and a half hours of singing unaccompanied harmony songs in a variety of styles from various cultures, the emphasis is on having fun and exploring our voices in harmony together.
The Ama Hera experience draws material from folk, contemporary, sacred, gospel and world music, songs are taught by ear, so there’s no need to read music, nor to have any previous singing experience. Clare’s workshops aim to establish a caring and supportive space, into which people are encouraged to enter, to explore their voices in a non judgemental way, and to open up to the joys and therapeutic benefits of group singing and harmony. Clare’s work is based on the principles of the Natural Voice Practitioners network, who believe that singing is our birthright and in a natural approach to voice.
