People of Note Taster: Wendy Sergeant
People of Note invites you to join us for an evening of singing (yes, it’s finally back!). Along with friendship, inspirational leadership – and fun! This workshop is open to all, as with the rest of our Autumn programme.
Our first event is with experienced and popular choir leader Wendy Sergeant – an old friend to the choir and a delight in store for those new to her.
Wendy’s style of teaching is uplifting and inspiring. She teaches songs by ear and the harmonies build like magic. Whether you are a confident singer or have only ever sung in the privacy of your own bathroom she will help you use your voice effectively and you’ll find yourself singing four part harmony without really trying.
Wendy directs the 250 strong “Gordano Gorgeous Chorus” with singers from Portishead, Clevedon and Pill, and runs, with Catherine Smith, Vibe pop/rock choir. She directs and sings with 16 piece a cappella group “The Chandeliers”. She is currently doing the two year “Professional Masters in Innovative Choir Leading” at RAMA – the Danish Royal College of Music and is looking forward to using new skills to teach and conduct her choirs.
She is well-known in the Bristol choir scene and beyond, and her arrangements of songs for community choirs are well-loved for being fun and easy to sing while having the power to thrill singers and audiences alike. She arranges and teaches songs from all sorts of genres – world music (many from Nickomo), jazz, pop, folk etc.
Some of her arrangements are available for sale on ChoirCommunity.net
DO COME – AND BLOW THOSE COBWEBS AWAY!
