Singing Retreat

Singing Retreat 2022

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 10th Singing Retreat.

DATE: 13th to 16th October 2022

TIMES: 5pm on Thursday until after lunch on Sunday

LOCATION: Windmill Farm, Bampton, Oxfordshire

The organisation, the food and the people exceeded my expectations in so many ways. I cannot rate it too highly …. The work rate was extraordinary and totally absorbing. Hannah and Patrick give so much of themselves enabling all of us to learn quickly and so produce something very acceptable at the end.

On a personal level I felt great satisfaction having sung solo for the first time in years in the cabaret. It speaks volumes about the safe environment created on these weekends. I would highly recommend it to anyone who expressed an interest.”

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 delicious, hearty food. Music will range in style from traditional choral, to world, to folk, to pop – there will be something for everyone.

We can cater for the vast majority of dietary requirements – please do contact us if you have any worries.

“Hannah’s singing retreat is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before! A compact, intense treat of beautiful songs and awesome people, in a setting close to nature with the inspiration of fresh air and countryside. It’s an amazing way to re-set your soul and feel invigorated by learning wonderful music and singing together with special people.

I loved the choice of pieces that we worked on… It was great to learn and chill out with a cross section of singers and meet singers from past retreats as well as making some brand new friends. Hannah and Patrick are a dream team who made the learning fun. I also enjoyed the opportunity to sample Luke’s fabulous cooking again.

The retreat helped me to appreciate the importance of having/making time for myself. I generally don’t sleep very well, but with exposure to the lovely environment and singing I had a couple of good nights of sleep. I also (with encouragement from one of the new friends I made) went swimming (for the first time in years) in the outdoor pool, which was really relaxing. I now plan to continue swimming at my local pool.
