Start Date: 2nd April 2020

End Time: 4.00pm
Fee: £56.00 What's included?

Known for their musical homages to surfing, cars and romance, the Beach Boys achieved success early in their career with a string of songs celebrating 60s youth culture on the West Coast of America. Their distinctive close-harmony vocal sound, laid-back grooves and easy-living lyrics describe a world that we would all like to escape to now and then, so why not immerse yourself in the sounds of a Californian summer with this fun and accessible group-singing workshop. We'll be doing some harmony singing but you don’t need to be able to read music notation as we will be learning our parts ‘by ear’ with lyric sheets. All levels of experience welcome.

In a culture of screens, Ipods, pads & players, where unregulated information highways are bustling with meaningless sound bites, Dillington provides a rare and beautiful lay-by. Reflection and reinvigoration is the name of the game. The mind is given new perspectives. Michael Mansfield QC
