LOCATION: Newhouse Farm Cottages, Tiverton
Love singing? Want to immerse yourself in wonderful surroundings and make music with a friendly and welcoming group of singers from all backgrounds? Then we would love for you to come along to Hannah Brine’s 9th Singing Retreat, this year in Tiverton, Devon.
What can you expect to do whilst on retreat?
Led by conductor Hannah Brine and guest conductor Patrick Barrett, you will learn gorgeous songs in 3 and 4 (and sometimes more!) part harmony as well as meeting fun, like-minded people and indulging in fabulous food prepared by our in-house chef. Music will range in style from traditional choral, to world, to folk, to pop – there will be something for everyone.
We have an incredible in-house chef, Luke Boatright, who will be providing singers with three meals a day (plus refreshments) on the retreat. This is Luke’s fifth year of catering for our singers and we love the food that he makes – delicious, healthy (most of the time!) and full of ingredients from his smallholding, Ranby Hill Farm. We can cater for the vast majority of dietary requirements – please do contact us if you have any worries.
