WISH, Women in Singing Harmony, is an initiative set up by well-known Durban performer, Shelley McLean. It is a vocal class offered to all women who have a ‘song in their hearts’.

Shelley identified a gap in the music world for the many people who loved singing at school or at university, but now find themselves without an outlet for sharing their singing passion.

After receiving several requests for private singing lessons, McLean decided to head up a group vocal class, one that would enable singers to learn more about the technical aspects of singing, as well as explore the delights of singing in harmony, while increasing their repertoire.

This group has steadily grown over the past eighteen months and the current WISH group is rehearsing hard for their upcoming showcase at Durban’s beloved Rhumbelow Theatre on Sunday 20 October. The show starts at 2pm and at 6.30pm. (Venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner).

Initially a project reserved for family and friends only, Roland Stansell, Rhumbelow Theatre Manager, requested that the concerts be opened up to the public so that women who may have a similar desire to ‘sing again’, would be able to see first-hand what WISH involves.

The WISH Showcase includes a varied repertoire and showcases the hidden talents of women whose ages range from ‘student to retired’ and whose professions include teachers, home executives, chiropractor, legal advisor and more.

Booking is essential. Book at Computicket or phone Roland on 031 205 7602, 082 499 8636 or email [email protected]
