Despite her untimely death at the age of 59, Dusty Springfield accumulated an impressive 40 year career in the music industry. With her distinctive sensual sound, peroxide blonde beehive hairstyle, evening gowns, and heavy makeup, this icon of the Swinging Sixties emerged as one of the most successful British female performers of the era. Now it’s your turn to sing some of her most enduring hits in this singing workshop, including I Only Want to Be With You and Wishin’ & Hopin’. With this fun group-singing format, no previous singing experience or ability to read music notation is necessary.
Jo Sercombe is a music graduate from Southampton University and Goldsmith’s University, London. She works locally and nationally as a vocalist, Musical Director and workshop leader and is particularly keen to make singing accessible to all, regardless of skill or experience. Her busy workshops schedule is a testament to her flair for encouraging creativity in others as she travels the country working with adult singing groups, community choirs, schools and colleges, businesses and leisure-time learning institutions. She’s even taken to singing upon the high seas, working with world cruise passengers sailing round the Far East and the Caribbean! Closer to home, she founded and directs the Bath Community Gospel Choir and the LIFTED all-female gospel group, is a lecturer in Choral Voice Work for Actors at Bath Spa University, gigs regularly as a jazz singer and is President of the Priston Music Festival.Back to List Make Booking Enquiry
In its commitment to the arts and to broader and even peripheral aspects of culture, Dillington House is a beacon of enlightenment in a world of increasing sameness, mediocrity and uncritical acceptance. And there is much to be said for the home cooking too. I unhesitatingly commend it to all who are still intellectually alert.
