Sing with Sassparella- a new community singing opportunity for 2015!

I am delighted to announce a new venture for 2015.

Our community choir Sassparella goes from strength to strength. We are delighted to have over 40 members, and we have a full performance calendar for this year.

However, I wanted to create an opportunity that opened up the fun with have learning and singing together to a much wider group… even men (-:   The concept of a “Sing with Sassparella” day was born.

And so, we are planning for just such an event. The music of Motown is instantly accessible and recognisable, the music of a generation. What better way than to spend a day plundering the back catalogue of wonderful melodies and songs!

But there’s more! How about a choir performing these songs with a real live soul band??!!! 

The idea will be to learn the songs during the day… then around 5pm be joined by a hand-picked group of excellent funk, soul and jazz musicians. The final performance will be one to remember!

I have started scoring out the arrangements. The parts will be shared via dropbox prior to the event (with sing-along mp3s for non-music readers). Stay tuned to this blog, or the Sassparella info page, for further updates.
