Songs for the journey

26/10/2018 - 28/10/2018 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

We all make journeys in life in many different ways. Songs and poems from around the world express this experience and can help us to give meaning to our own spiritual journey. Use song as a way to help you find some space to reflect, while also enjoying the fellowship and fun of learning new songs. Janet invites you to come and sing – “no matter what others tell you, or you tell yourself about your voice!”

 “Janet gets the impossible out of us. I never thought I could sing, but I have achieved a life’s ambition of singing in a choir. Thank you.” (choir member)

“Janet is an inspirational teacher.” (April 2016 retreatant)

Janet Swan is an experienced choir leader and member of the Natural Voice Network. She leads a number of choirs and events. The emphasis is always on singing in the voice you were born with and building your confidence and love of singing.
