Music Making and Learning for People Over 50

Silver Plainsong

Autumn Half Term: September 22 - October 20, 2015

Music Education Centre

Explore the single, unaccompanied melodic lines of the early music of the western church. Participants will learn by ear and then see how different styles of notation represent the melodies.

Almost all of the chant is conversation between soloist and choir or between different groups of singers.
All voices welcome, no experience necessary. This is religious music, but people of any faith or none are welcome.

These sessions are peer led.
