Sunny Side UP, 27 - 29 July
Experience the magic of bringing a song together in four part harmony under the guidance of our talented song leader Carol Shortis.
We join forces with visiting Dunedin gospel choir Sunny Side Up. Based at the Tararua Tramping Club and Thistle Hall venues in central Wellington we will workshop some gospel songs.
The weekend will finish with a performance at the Thistle Hall on Sunday afternoon.
Cost: $40 for the weekend, option to have a meal together at Plum on Cuba Street on Saturday night.
Riverslea Retreat, 7-9 September
Enjoy an energizing weekend of singing at the magical Riverslea Retreat, in a bush setting by the Otaki River. You can stay in bunk accommodation or visit for just the Saturday. Riverslea is renowned for delicious homemade meals and is worth a visit for that reason alone.
Led by our talented song leader Carol Shortis, we'll workshop songs and also have time to explore the surroundings. We conclude the weekend with a sing in the Rangiatea Church in Otaki.
Cost: from $90 (Saturday only) to $200 (full weekend including food and accommodation)
