Swingle Singers Workshop at Clifton College - 27 January 2016

We were delighted to welcome to the Chapel two members of the internationally renowned and Grammy-award-winning singing group The Swingle Singers.

Kevin Fox and Old Cliftonian Oliver Griffiths passed on some pearls of wisdom on being a professional singer and ran a workshop teaching games and exercises to develop skills in singing improvisation.

From call and response, to letting go of expectations, circle songs and leader/accompanist/follower games, these exercises gave the pupils new tools to take away and practise the fun of "just making it up".

It was a great evening so thank you to The Swingle Singers for making it so memorable! View a little video below of Kevin Fox and Old Cliftonian Oliver Griffiths showing their expertise to the students.
