SING-SONG SHOWTIME is an uplifting one-day master-class in singing, performance, and courage, with ARIA Award Winning musician Clare Bowditch.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
In the morning, Clare plies you with tea and cake and teaches you everything she knows about singing, performing, and the cultivation of internal courage.
In the afternoon, you and Clare and your new choir get dressed up and put on a live show in front of an audience of your most supportive friends and family (their entry is included as part of your ticket).
WHO IS THIS FOR?
The event is designed both for beginners (especially those who doubt their ability to sing or perform in public), and for professionals who want to deepen their ability to connect with audiences and share their voices in a bigger way.
Think one-part "School of Rock", one-part "The Artists Way", one-part ninja training, one part heroes-journey, and one part best-friend’s club. It can be for you, or it can be for a friend, colleague or loved one
In short – it’s for anyone who doesn’t want to die with their music inside them.
We often get asked if this is a women’s only event and the answer is a definite NO! Having a mixed-gender choir adds so much to the experience: it just happens that 90% of people who come are women. This lop-sidedness is a very common trend in all choirs, but we would love to see this balance out. So yes, all welcome!
SOUNDS AMBITIOUS. HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS WILL WORK?
Because Clare’s done it before. In fact, Clare has been teaching rooms of strangers to sing together in only minutes for over thirteen years, ever since she took “Community Singing Leadership Training” with Faye White here in Victoria, Australia. Since then, she’s had the joy of teaching whole Opera Houses and stadiums of people how to sing songs together in only minutes (as any one who saw her supporting Leonard Cohen in 2010 can attest). The last Sing-Song Showtime was a stunning, sold-out, joyful success. We hope the same will be true for this one.
PURCHASING AS A PRESENT
Sing-Song Showtime makes a great present for the person in your life that loves to sing but may not get a chance to as often as they like. Simply purchase a ticket with their name and your email address and you'll receive the welcoming email in their name that you can print off and give to them on the day.
I attended last Sunday’s Sing, Song, Workshop and just wanted to say that the day was amazing. I felt like I walked away with many skills for improving my singing both in technique and how thoughts about my singing impact on my performance. Clare is such an inspiring woman and brings such presence, honesty, courage and humour to the room. I think she should be so proud of what she brings to her music and to how she helped many people on Sunday to realise their full potential in being brave. Samantha McDermott
Thank you for such an empowering & joyful day. It was beautiful to experience such a powerful heart connection with you and my fellow attendees & seeing the joy in everyone's faces. The structure of the day was excellent; Your generosity of spirit was so evident Clare, in the stories you shared of your own experiences and your ability to make all of us feel important and valued by being there. I personally gained so much from the day. I loved it & absolutely hope to attend your next one. All the best, Lisa Morgan
