Saturday 26th March 2022 2-5pm: “Playing for Parish worship” A workshop with tutors Philip Prior (from Essex Organ Academy) & Hilary Punnett (from Chelmsford Cathedral) at the parish church of St. James the Great, East Hill, Colchester.
Designed to help you improve your skills at playing for or accompanying a service, players of all standards are invited to join us. Bring a part of worship from your home parish that you would like to work on, (e.g. Hymns, psalms of any style, mass settings, choir accompaniments, etc.) and we will help you enhance your skills and confidence, as well as give you fresh ideas to help you feel invigorated and inspired when you go back to your parish. Participants of all abilities and ages welcome, from beginner to experienced, from ‘hands only’ to ‘pedals included’. We will finish the afternoon with a chance to play in an informal worship service for each other.
Cost £10 for adults, £5 for under 18s. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place or for more information. (This is a joint event between Essex Organ Academy & RSCM-EEL.)
