This Come & Sing day is recommended for absolutely everyone - expect to sing, laugh and make new vocal friends. No need for music or preparation, just bring yourselves and your enthusiasm and have a great time!
The theme of the day will be 'Songs from the Movies', so you can look forward to favourites like The Way We Were (from the Streisand movie) and We're all in this together (from High School Musical) as well as newer classics such as Falling Slowly from the fabulous movie and West End musical Once.
Workshop begins at 11am (registration from 10.45)

ABOUT THE CONDUCTOR
Sam Evans began his musical career as a singer. Having been a choral scholar at King’s College Cambridge, he went on to train at the Royal Academy of Music, and at the Royal College of Music International Opera School, graduating with the Tagore Gold Medal. He has sung regularly with the Monteverdi Choir since 2001, and has sung with most of the other professional choirs in the UK. He is much in demand as a singing teacher, and teaches for the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain and on the renowned Eton Choral Courses, as well as being on the visiting teaching staff at Westminster School and Queen’s College Cambridge.
In recent years, he has brought his experience as a choral singer and singing teacher to bear in training choirs. He has been Music Director of Battersea Choral Society (formerly Thomas’s Choral Society) since 2013, and is Music Director of Teddington Choral Society. He directs the choirs at Kingston University, and earlier this year was asked to set up a new choir, the Battersea Power Station Community Choir. He is formerly Music Director of Riverside Opera, and Choral Director at Reading University. Sam brings to his choral direction his passion for the music and his infectious enthusiasm, as well as his professional expertise.
