Say Say Yes
Songs from the Black Lives Matter Commissioning Project
7th May 2023 9.30am - 5pm
Paraparaumu Memorial Hall
Cnr Aorangi & Tutanekai Street
The second workshop in this series exploring new compositions for community choirs written by black composers from the UK and US.
You can read the 'story so far' about the BLM Commissioning Project, on my web page here.
This workshop is suitable for anyone who wants to explore anti-racism and cultural honouring through song. Everyone is welcome, whether you're a seasoned community choir singer or have never done anything like this before. The day's singing will be interspersed with video presentations about the songs and composers, and discussion groups reflecting our responses to the music.
Your registration costs include a financial contribution to the artists who’ve written these songs, and I’ll also be donating a portion of my income from this workshop to JustSpeak: www.justspeak.org.nz
