Marcus Mosely, Darlene Ketchum and Bill Sample return to Comox for another weekend of Gospel Music through their Gospel Workshop. The workshop will focus on presenting and experiencing Gospel music as an empowering force for overcoming adversity and oppression…and moving to an unbridled expression of joy and personal empowerment. From its roots of field songs and spirituals to its development into blues, jazz, R & B and many other genres, Gospel music has been used as a herald of social justice and civil rights, for unifying and connecting people and as a powerful platform to let one’s “voice” be heard. It is some of the most inspirational and electrifying music to arise from North America!
The program will include a review of elements covered in the August (2019) workshop, with extensions in the repertoire and gospel techniques. These include
-vocal techniques for singing Gospel (style and form), Foundation of Rhythm and groove, improvisational singing, call and response and 3 part Gospel harmonies
-how singing connects and empowers us
-how to find your voice and communicate from your core
This workshop is suitable for anyone 16 years and older.
