Developing material taught by Tui Mamaki in her Balkan singing workshops over the last 2 summers, Carol Shortis will be preparing a "project choir" of singers over 10 weeks in October-November and February, providing an opportunity to immerse ourselves deeply in the magical world of Bulgarian song. The course will include two workshops with Tui Mamaki herself, and culminate in a performance at the Newtown Festival.

The group will form in mid-October 2017, and run for five weeks meeting on Tuesday evenings in Newtown Community Centre, led by Carol. Tui will present a full-day workshop on Sunday 26th November to shape the choir and give further direction. We then re-convene on 23rd January with another evening workshop with Tui, followed by five more Tuesday evenings with Carol. There is the option to attend a full-day public workshop with Tui on 3rd March, and we'll perform at the Newtown Festival on 4th March. 

Payment is required on registration. (can negotiate $90 by 17th October + 5 x weekly payments of $18 by 26th November). Cancellation policy: full refund before 17th October. 50% refund before 16th January.
