Take the time to slow down and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Nurture your creativity and well-being with our winter weekend singing retreat in the heart of rural Limousin, France.
Embracing the Scandinavian concept of hygge our days will be filled with activities to warm the heart, body and soul. From joyous daily group singing, exploring the beauty of the Limousin landscapes and countryside, sharing delicious home cooked meals by candlelight and the all important relaxing in front of the log fire with a good book and a hot chocolate.
Nurture your creativity and well-being
Daily group singing workshops and an individual vocal coaching session too. We will sing a range of uplifting songs from pop, rock, folk and world music repertoires. There is no need to read music, as all songs will be taught by ear. The only requirement is a love of singing.
When you sing, musical vibrations move through you, altering your physical and emotional landscape. Group singing, for those who have done it, is the most exhilarating and transformative of all. It takes something incredibly intimate, a sound that begins inside you, shares it with a roomful of people and it comes back as something even more thrilling: harmony. So it’s not surprising that group singing is on the rise.
