Brighter Sound presents Sing City songwriting and vocal collective for 13-18’s.

Broaden skills, collaborate and perform with Sing City this spring 2016. Learn to sing and harmonise, develop vocal skills, share ideas, write new music and of course make new friends. Our free Sing City sessions continue to build, develop and nourish the talent of young people by incorporating regular performance opportunities, guest masterclasses and special workshops into our programme.

Sessions are led by a team of expert vocalists and music educators who all work professionally in the music industry. This fantastic team includes Sara Lowes (solo artist and composer), Yvonne Shelton (Gloria Estefan, Simply Red, George Michael), Liam Frost (solo artist and with Tokolosh band), as well as a number of guest musicians. Past guests have included psych-pop quintet Blossoms, British indie stars Field Music and Futurehead’s frontman Barry Hyde. This term Sing City welcomes award-winning folk fusion quintet Project Jam Sandwich and critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Josephine.

At the end of every month, there is a Sing City Live under 18’s performance night giving young musicians the opportunity to perform live on stage at one of Manchester’s best live music venues, Band on the Wall.

Open to 13-18’s. Drop-in sessions, no booking required.
