JANE BUSBY Choir Director
'It’s all about singing to the best of your ability, with energy and passion!'
Jane studied at the Italia Conti stage school in London, and has been a member of various drama groups, choral societies and choirs before leaving England for Spain eleven years ago. She has written, produced and directed musical productions in the UK and in Spain.
In 2008 she took on the role of Director to a small choir in Andalucía with only thirteen members. This has now grown to over forty.
Using a unique formula means reading music is unnecessary allowing the joy of singing to become a user friendly passenger activity. Singing along to quality backing tracks also allows the performer to 'feel' the music, rather than just singing along to a piano.
With a minimum of three rehearsals of at least one hour in length, it would be possible to achieve two or three songs. Rehearsals would include basic singing techniques. If the cruise duration permit's, additional rehearsals offer greater scope.
The aim would be to perform a short concert at the end of the voyage.
The portfolio is varied with musical styles to suit everyone. Song choices will be made dependant on numbers, ability and season.
Songs including - Sailing * I believe * Lean on me* Run * Only you * Something inside so strong * Magic moments *Have you ever seen the rain * Last Christmas * First Noel * It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas * Silent Night * Sussex Carol * Twelve day's of Christmas.....and many more
Singing with Jane is enjoyable and fun. It's also great exercise for your heart and lungs, boosts confidence and imparts a wonderful sense of achievement.
Performing with others in a choir is also a great way to make friends on a cruise.
