Laughton Village Choir (LVC)
Venue: Laughton Village Hall, East Sussex
Mondays - 8pm to 9:30pm
Based in Laughton, we are a friendly community choir, always keen to welcome new members. We rehearse 8:00-9:30pm on Mondays at Laughton Village Hall, Church Lane, Laughton, BN8 6AH
No previous choral experience is required although the ability to sing in tune is an advantage!
The Clockhouse Singers meet 10-12 on Thursday mornings Wick Street Farm, BN26 6TN.. We are a small mixed group (currently 3 men and 10 women) that specialised in a cappella close-harmony classical and jazz. Our repertoire ranges from sophisticated jazz arrangements (Swingle, Puerling, Real Group) and tricky classical numbers by the likes of Copland and Whitacre , often in 8 parts.
We don't actually perform very frequently, the rehearsals being satisfying in their own right. Mostly we appear as guests in other choirs' concerts, and are always open to invitations!

Two day workshop
Periodically, Linda offers workshops in a converted barn near Berwick, E Sussex. Workshops have covered a wide variety of music and formats: sometimes a small balanced choir of up to 24 singers work on a selection of capella choral music (classical or jazz), or a single more substantial work; sometimes the workshop focuses on singing technique, using a variety of exercises and one or two short pieces; and sometimes Linda coaches singers individually and collectively on 4 or 5 Lieder.
Do you or your choir need practical conducting help?
Would your choir or choral society like to host a workshop?
Linda offers voice production workshops tailored to your needs which concentrate more specifically on how to sing rather than what notes to sing. Vocal workshops offer the opportunity to establish the fundamentals of singing technique and to provide a sort of singing surgery. Price depends on numbers and duration.
