Choral workshop: Original Gospel Choir Sound

Audrey Mattis, Saturday workshops at Gospel Rising Music Festival 2022

This workshop will introduce you to an original gospel chorus allowing you to and “tune into” the historical gospel choir sound.

Audrey will give you a quick study of the “gospelised” spiritual form looking at its use of Blues and Pentatonic scales before moving on to explore how vocal techniques like Enunciation, articulation, breath and vibrato are used to create the gospel choir sound. All this learning will be wrapped up in song! A wonderful intro to where “Gospel” came from. 

Slot: Workshop session 1, Saturday 09.30 – 11.15
