What will it involve?

This is a harmony singing workshop for male voices where attendees will be learning and singing in four-part harmony, popular songs which have been adopted by clubs as football anthems.

The workshop will feature the well-known ballad ‘You’ll never walk alone’, which comes originally from the musical Carousel and was popularised in the 60’s by Liverpool’s Gerry Marsden before the Anfield Kop took it to its heart.

The workshop will also feature Neil Diamond’s pop classic ‘Sweet Caroline’ which became a favourite of Royals fans in the record breaking 106 points promotion season.
