Different Voices National Music Event 2013

Only a few weeks until this exciting event, so if you are planning on attending, you should book as soon as you can. Our own ohn L. Bell and several members of the Holy City team and Wild Goose Collective will be playing crucial roles!

It's going to be a gathering of musicians, composers, children's workers and anyone who uses music in the life and work of the church, to come and take part in an event design to inspire and enable folk to use music in even more imaginative and effective ways. It is not just for musicians but for anyone who loves music, singing etc.

Workshops include people working nationally and locally and include composers, writers and musicians working in the four fields of Classical Music, Contemporary Music, Community Music and Children's Music.

Info on subsidised accommodation can be obtained when booking.

Full details can be found by following this link: http://www.churchofscotland.org.uk/worship/music_for_worship/different_voices/different_voices_music_events>

Here you can look over the contributions. Do also let others know by forwarding this to anyone on your networks, church or social groups.
