Wacapella wins £4,000
- A Weymouth-based women's singing group has been awarded nearly £4,000
by the National Lottery for a new music project.
Wacapella has received an Awards for All grant of £3,910 to help them
run a host of workshops and devise new music.
The group is now keen to recruit new members, particularly those with
sight impairment, and will be forming a rubbish band' inspired by the
Warehouse Theatre where it meets.
Musical director Juliet Harwood will be leading the singing workshops
as part of the Site and Sound project.
She said: "The music we sing is carefully chosen so that it can be
learned by rote. You do not have to be able to read music or the words
to join in."
The first workshop takes place on May 21 and the music sessions will
culminate in a concert in Hope Church, Weymouth, on July 12 with the
town's Quangle Wangle choir.
For more information on how to get involved in the sessions, contact
