Renowned choir director Rosa Malone is returning to Petersfield to host a one-off world music workshop open to everyone.
Rosa, who was raised in
Petersfield and studied at Trinity College of Music, has been
directing choirs in Greece for six years, and specialises in making
choral singing fun, inspirational and open to all people, regardless
of their experience. In addition to regular choir practices, Rosa
runs singing retreats in the Greek Islands, holds online singing
tutorials and regular workshops.
In the workshop in
Petersfield, she will be teaching adults and children of all
abilities to sing songs from around the world, including some
Christmas songs, in an informal day during which singers can bring
and share lunch and enjoy the music together in a relaxed atmosphere.
She explained: “People
always gain confidence during these workshops and they go away
feeling energised and uplifted. It’s just what we need in the dark
days of November and the start of the busy Christmas period. We have
songs from Macedonia, Ghana, Brazil and many other places, all
presented in a way which is easy to pick up without the need to read
The session will be
held in the United Reformed Church Hall in College Street,
Petersfield on Saturday, 23 November, between 10am and 4pm and

Starting this week, Petersfield’s environmental services will be delivered through East Hampshire District Council’s partnership with Havant Borough Council.
