"You're so (seemingly) effortlessly skilled at easing everyone in, getting them relaxed and bonded, and then teaching in perfect sized chunks so there is a flow and momentum and everyone is kept engaged. Your humour and comfort with being in charge make it such a settling experience, I could just rest and sing, knowing you had it all under control." Participant on a previous Around the World in Song day

A whole day of glorious harmony singing, fun and laughter. No experience needed – just a love of singing!
All songs have been chosen carefully and arranged especially for voices only. Lose yourself in thrilling rhythmic songs from Africa, rich dark harmonies from Eastern Europe, uplifting African American Gospel and the sweet sounds of the Pacific.
Chris teaches everything by ear (no need to read music). No previous experience needed – just bring yourself and have a go. Whether you've only ever sung in the shower, or you're already in a choir, there will be something here for everyone.
This will be Chris's eighth visit to Hursley. Each year has sold out, so make sure to book your place in plenty of time!
Comments from previous visits:
"Great selection of songs. Good to be challenged with not singing all standing in the same part, also with doing rhythm only sections. Great fun – will come again!"
"Thanks so much for the workshop. It's the best one-day workshop I've been to. Perfect song choice, not only with the variety of styles, but with the difficulty levels ranging from easy to hard."
"This was a lovely workshop, a new way to learn to sing in harmony with others, also a lesson in communication and listening to others."
