Cantemus Chamber Choir Wales has arranged two workshops, led by Rene Alvarez of Cuban Combination (www.cubancombination.com) with the support of members of his band, to allow singers to try different styles of Cuban vocal music.
Rene will introduce us to new music, encouraging freedom from the printed score, and even movement to the infectiously syncopated Cuban rhythms.
Both "Sing Cuba!" workshops will take place in The Gate Arts Centre, Keppoch Street, Roath, Cardiff on Saturday and Sunday. They will start at 10.00 am, finishing at 4.30 pm after an informal performance/run-through of the day's work. Friends or guests are very welcome to join us at 4.00 pm for this.
Each workshop will be run on the same lines but will have different content, so it will be worth coming on both days. Places are limited so it is best to book early.
