A unique opportunity to join ELECTRIC VOICE THEATRE Artistic Director  Frances M Lynch, for an exhilarating training programme based on music by Eliza Flower (1803–1846)  and some contemporary women composers

Frances was so lovely and supportive! Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience ❤️

This is your chance to be part of our Eliza Flower project in collaboration with Conway Hall, bringing their archive of this unsung composer’s diverse and extraordinary music to life. You can read more about the project here

The workshops will challenge participants to create their own vocal ensemble – “The Flower Singers” – from scratch, using body and breath techniques and synchronized group formations to forensically examine key acapella skills eg.-listening, rhythm, tuning, unison, language, intervals and the extended voice.

It was almost like belonging to a company during the process, working together as an ensemble and bouncing off each other to accomplish a common goal.

I will continue to use the exercises / ideas taught to me. Every time I sing now, I can’t help but warm up using these practices!

My favourite exercise was when we walked the intervals

Young Singers Programme Participants 2022

The course is based on repertoire by radical feminist composer Eliza Flower (1803 – 1846) and contemporary women composers working on the Flower Project with EVT The Flower Composers.

… really helped my mental health and I felt that I was working with a cause to promote female musicians which I think is very important.

I have gained more confidence in my voice

Be prepared for a day of hard work & fun at Conway Hall!

The most valuable aspect for me was being made so welcome right from the start, feeling part of a group of fun, interesting and supportive people all working towards a goal.

Frances is so passionate, enthusiastic and bubbly about the music, it just makes you feel so happy taking part.
