These luxury long weekend retreats are providing a creative space for adult vocalists and singer songwriters both professional and semi-professional; to inspire/be inspired and lean into creativity, gain vocal health knowledge and performance experience and most excitingly, build community through mutual love of singing and performance. Though I am starting locally at a beautiful rural retreat center, my intention is to offer these retreats in destination locations around the world! (I mean, who doesn’t want to sing in The Caribbean??!!)

Heather Keens’ The ‘Oyster Singers’ is a new community Choir based in Brooklyn, New South Wales, Australia. We are a small community of 750 people, the original industry here was oyster fishing. In the photograph you will see our original nine members from February 2018. We now have twenty members and counting. Most of our warm-up activities are based on Somatic Voicework. They are a delightful group of people who make a good sound. Heather Keens conducts and leads the choir and her husband, Frank, accompanies on the piano and makes arrangements of the songs.
Last term we found repertoire around the topics of fish and water, including Hoagy Carmichael’s ‘Some Days there just ain’t no Fish’. Brooklyn, NSW and our nearest island ‘Long Island’ was named in 1886, when a New York, USA steel company came out to build the railway bridges here. Many of the workers were Americans, who lived in the area until the bridges were finished.
