🌹🎶A New Season of Song The falling leaves, drift by my window... So here in London, the strange summer of lockdown easing and variegated weather is passing, as we turn towards the time of burnt leaves falling. I always get that nostalgic back to school feeling and the desire to rustle papers, sharpen pencils and start harvesting.
There is much afoot in this mad old world, we face global crises of the pandemic, climate change and the tragic situation in Afghanistan plus our own local and personal concerns.
Creativity - and of course singing - offers us a huge source of resilience - a means by which we can channel, express, transcend, release and process our experiences - which can be both deeply personal and bring us into deeper connection with each other.
In my latest episode of Vocal Revolution I share the story and insights gleaned from making my album Flame over lockdown. When the world is in many places literally on fire, we can, I believe, embrace the challenges and burn through, dedicating ourselves to building a better world for everyone - or as the Isley Brothers would sing, a Harvest for the World.
So let's keep claiming and raising our voices as we follow our noses, hearts and creative callings into the new season.
Things I'm excited about for Autumn include: * Special Hope Concert with some very special artists - more soon! * 20th Anniversary Sing for Water Event @ The Scoop on 19th Sept * Being able to sing safely in person indoors with my Choirs! All welcome to come for a FREE Open Sing on 16th Sept @ St John the Evangelist, SE19 2RX, 7.00-8.30pm Scroll down for lots of lovely info & other things :)
Wishing you abundant harvesting and joyful resilience this September

"Pure joy of learning to sing with others. I didn't think I could sing, I can't read music and I had no faith in my voice. Katie helped me to find the courage to try.” - Anna
