Jazz Vocal Workshop
Amateur and semi-pro vocalists sing selected numbers with a small professional combo, under the auspices of Michael Klein and Chris Legee who host the popular Singers' Night at The Nelson in Stanmore Street (second Tuesday of every month). In the quieter environment of the performance space here it is possible for singers to be recorded, which is one of the aims of these workshops. Informal audience welcome to drop in, or there is a ticket (£10) for the full session if you ask Chris Legee. There has been an impressively high standard at these workshops - ask Chris if you would like to be a performing participant at a future event.
Admission: No charge to drop in, £10 full session.
