Singers of all abilities are invited to a winter workshop in deepest Dorset. Acclaimed singer/songwriter and vocal coach, Rosa Rebecka, leads a full day of Christmas carols, wassails and winter songs from her native Sweden at Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Kingcombe Centre. Set in idyllic west Dorset countryside, the Centre is the perfect place to get away from it all and celebrate the winter season in song, surrounded by the unsurpassed countryside of one of Dorset’s finest nature reserves.
Be part of beautiful music inspired by winter
Born in Gothenburg, Rosa grew up by the pine forests and lakes of southern Sweden, writing songs and poetry from the age of five and going on to play flute and guitar. Now based in Devon, Rosa loves to share her music with singers, whether in choirs or individuals just beginning to find their voice. Bringing her winter songs to Kingcombe for the first time, Rosa says: “There’s some beautiful music inspired by the holidays, but also by the stars of the winter sky, and by the hope of the returning sun. I can’t wait to share these songs in this special place.”
Hundreds of acres for inspiration
The Kingcombe Centre lies within the hundred acre Kingcombe Meadows reserve, where nature and man have lived in harmony for generations. Dorset Wildlife Trust continues the traditional practices that have allowed the meadows, woods, stream and ancient lanes to survive, complete with their astonishing richness of wildlife. DWT’s wide range of courses and activities based at Kingcombe make it a unique place to encounter, learn about or simply enjoy nature.
The workshop ‘Singing in the Seasons Winter’ is on Saturday 10th December from 10am to 4pm. It costs £45, which includes refreshments and a Kingcombe Centre lunch from locally sourced ingredients. To book, ring 01300 320684 or visit the Kingcombe Centre website.
