Dartford Township Choir - Oxon Hoath Singing Weekend 2014

On the last full session on Sunday morning Mike arranged for a final rehearsal of each song which he then recorded.  Following a near disaster when the microphone fell over, but luckily was not damaged, recording proceeded with the soloists later being overdubbed.


These recordings could not be professional studio quality given limited time and environment but they show what can be achieved with non-professional singers and lots of patience and enthusiasm from a talented and charismatic musical director.

Thanks for a truly wonderful weekend,
loved every minute! Great to have all the
Recordings so soon as well. Look forward
to November!

See you then.

Participants arrived on Friday evening and an introduction

followed by a singing workshop got things off to a brisk

start.  Dinner allowed people to relax and enjoy delicious food.


After breakfast on Saturday there was another fairly intense

workshop, where more songs were added, followed by lunch.  

After lunch we had several hours free time and some people

took the opportunity to take a leisurely walk to the Swan on

the Green pub at West Peckham.  Another workshop in the

early evening then dinner and relaxation in front of an open

fire in the library.

Feedback:


What a wonderful time we had.  I left early

but would like to give some initial feedback.


Fantastic venue with lovely staff.  Admin side of it went very smoothly. Loved the addition of yoga in the morning.  Songs a good mix of challenging and easy. Rooms were very good.


I found the longer singing sessions a little too long. Perhaps an earlier break in each would have helped, but I was really tired with half an hour to go in each case. Or a slightly different

timetable, particularly on the Saturday.



Thank you to all the committee.

Stand by Me
Thanks again to you and all the committee
for all your hard work - the weekend was a
complete treat.  The only feedback that
I would seriously offer, is that the venue
should be booked again for 2016 (I under-
stand it is fully booked for 2015)  - it is in
the bag then and it wouldn't be a problem
Cancelling.  I think everyone who went this
weekend would not hesitate returning.
