Top British Gospel music maker Tyndale Thomas is spreading the word with a day long workshop at Poulton Methodist Church on Saturday, March 7. The event, which runs from 10am to 4pm, aims to give participants a better understanding of the Gospel music tradition, its background and history and offers them the chance to develop their musical knowledge and skills in a relaxed, fun and supportive environment. There will be group singing activities and tuition and guidance will be given about breath control, vocal technique and harmony.
A co-founding member of one of the first contemporary Gospel groups and choirs, The Challengers, and The Merry Bell Gospel Choir, Tyndale creates and performs Gospel/inspirational music throughout the UK, Europe and America. He has supported and performed with nationally and internationally acclaimed artists, including Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone and Rick Wakeman.
Tyndale has continued to build on his reputation as an ambassador for Gospel and inspirational music in this country and abroad, by initialising new working techniques, delivering music, singing and song-writing workshops and seminars to people of all ages and from a diversity of cultures and abilities. In June 2008 he was awarded the MBE for his contribution in promoting Gospel and inspirational music.
He is the choir director for the Liverpool Harmonic Gospel Choir and the One Voice Community Choir in Preston and the musical director of Urban Voice. His debut album, Genesis, with original music and lyrics has been released featuring the above choirs.
Tickets are £12 for the workshop at Poulton Methodist Church, Queensway, Poulton FY6 7ST. To book your place, call Tony Brindle-Wills on 07989423027 or email [email protected]
