Petersfield choir director Rosa Malone will be leading a unique eight-week singing project in preparation for a performance on International Women’s Day in early March, in support of Refuge – a charity which assists women and their children who find themselves in domestic abuse situations.
Rosa, who was raised in Petersfield and studied at Trinity College of Music, has been directing choirs in Greece for six years, and specialises in making choral singing fun, inspirational and open to all people, regardless of their experience. In addition to regular choir practices, Rosa runs singing retreats in the Greek Islands, holds online singing tutorials and regular workshops.
Rosa is putting together a programme of inspiring and empowering music, all of which can be learned by ear, meaning that the group will be open to anyone, regardless of experience. She said, “I hope that as a unique, short-term project without long-term commitment, this will be something that mothers can do with their daughters, as it will also be open to girls over 12. It’ll be a great way of investing time with each other and sharing the community experience with other like-minded people; women working together to help other women. I think we’re all looking forward to something positive and uplifting to focus on in the New Year after all the stress and excitement of Christmas has died down.”
The eight-week course will be held at The Square Brewery in Petersfield GU32 3HJ every Wednesday, 7-8:30pm, starting on 15/1/20. Rosa will also be running a free taster session for people to come and see what it’s all about on 11/1/20, 11am-12pm, also at The Square Brewery.
