From time to time The Honeybees conduct a 'Gospel Groove' Workshop. These usually occur in late November.
It's a fun, full day of singing and learning. Steve Clarke (our musical director) teaches some four-part gospel arrangements, while Adjunct Professor Ladd Wheeler sheds light on the history of gospel music (from the slavery period, to the civil rights movement, and beyond). Venue is the community hall at Wayside Chapel, Potts Point (a short walk from Kings Cross station).
If this interests you, please join the Friends of The Bees and we'll let you know when the next workshop is.
These workshops have been very well received in the past with great reviews like :
"Thankyou for a wonderful day! I loved everything about it. The historical content was relevant and the singing was perfect! I felt so fulfilled when I went home ... The Honeybees performances were great ... very inspiring.”
