Harmony Magic - Paros Singing Holiday with Award Winning Composer - Helen Yeomans May - June 2016
Looking for a holiday with a difference this summer? How about singing morning, noon and night, discovering a beautiful Greece Island, having BBQs on the beach, making new friends and meeting likeminded people as you discover your voice from within?
By: Helen Yeomans
With a beautiful broad repertoire of music from simple chants, gospel rock, world music and heart-felt original songs written by Helen, this fabulous singing holiday is a unique break away in the sun where you can learn something new. Whether you are an accomplished singer or even if you have never sung before you will be amazed at the beautiful soulful harmonies you will create under the patience and guidance of Helen.
Helen Yeomans is an international award winning song writer/composer and she is the founder and leader of the acclaimed a cappella choir Glorious Chorus. Glorious Chorus's reputation has taken the choir around the country, including performances at Glastonbury festival, The Isle Of Wight Jazz Festival and Port Eliot Festival. Helen writes and/or arranges all the songs that the choir sings and runs workshops around the UK and abroad teaching her award-winning compositions. She is also the director of Thula Mama Ltd, teaching songs to mothers and babies, and has franchised groups around the UK. Helen's song 'Awaken' was chosen as a featured performance piece at 2009's 'Sing For Water' annual fundraiser at London's South Bank, as part of the Mayor's Thames Festival. Her songs were also chosen to be performed at the Brighton Fringe Festival in 2008 and 2009. In 2006 Helen's song 'Goddess' was an Honourable Mention Winner at the Unisong international song writing Competition. In 2015 she won the gospel/faith prize in a major international song writing competition with her show-stopping song 'Saved'. With over 7,000 entries in the competition and winners from around the world, Helen is thrilled with this success.
Says Helen "One of the most rewarding aspects of my work to bring people out of their shell and express themselves through their voice".
It is no surprise that Helen is in demand for commissioned work and she is currently working with the Hull Freedom Choir for performances next year.
Helen's ability to infuse groups with her passion and humour is magical! Expect tears, laughter, exquisite music, passion and lots of love. All in a beautiful family run hotel on the beach in Paros.
