August workshops

Sat 3rd & 17th Aug 2-4pm, Upper Norwood Library Hub

Miss singing during the summer break? Or thinking of joining a choir and want a no-strings-attached way to try it out?


Join Palace Acappella for a fun, stand alone workshop. All experience levels welcome.


The workshop will start with a physical and vocal warm up, then we'll learn a round or simple song all together and add levels of challenge as we go. Perfection is not expected, laughter is!


We'll spend most of the session learning one or two songs from scratch in 3 part harmony. We usually sing a mixture of pop, folk, world and classical music, with occasional forays into musical theater and jazz.


The workshops is open to all adults who want to sing. Sheet music and/or lyrics will be provided.

why join a choir?


Choir is about SO MUCH more than just singing - here are a few other things you might get out of it:


- find a local network and community

- experience a combination of challenge, fun, creating

something in a team and sense of achievement

- enhance physical and mental wellbeing

- improve memory and look after your brain

additional opportunities

At Palace Acappella we like to offer extra opportunities and help our choir members showcase and develop skills outside of the main choir too. Currently this includes:


- Kickstart Workshop at the beginning of each season, learning something outside our usual repertoire. Previous workshops have included Sea Shanties with the Salty Shanty Boys, improvisation with Kevin Fox and rhythm and percussion with JT Taylor. Kickstart Workshops are usually open to non-choir members - keep an eye on our website/socials or join the mailing list to hear about these

- Extra workshops and projects - previously these have included Small Ensemble, Solo Performance and singing technique courses, and offering small ensemble and solo performance opportunities in concert. Some of these are open to non-choir members!

- other things! Choir members have got involved with editing audio and video for performances, social media, creating posters, flier and T-shirt designs, knitting scarves to keep us warm in our outdoor Christmas performances. And more!

We LOVE finding out what our members are interested in doing and what skills we can help them develop.
