Event Details

Further to past ten years of working with schools and children and staging Voice In A Million Concerts we have been delighted to see the increase of children applying to audition for our stage choir, and also
schools applying to perform on stage has trebled over the last two years.
With this in mind it had been more apparent that children in particular would benefit dramatically form coaching pre our stage choir auditions.
Therefore the VIAM team will be running a series of workshops over six days during the summer holidays pre our main audition sessions on September 17th
All performers will work not only on group numbers but also on one solo song that they will during the course of the workshop record and leave with their very own CD !
VIAM VOICE WORKSHOPS cover various elements integral to the success of any singer.
