Festival of Song

Space is available on this event! :-D

Led by Gilo and Sarah

Sarah Pennington and Gilo, UK Natural Voice teachers, return to Othona with songs from a wide variety of traditions. Many of the (unaccompanied) singing sessions are held in the chapel, candlelit in the evenings, where the sound has a quality nowhere else can come close to. It’s no surprise that many who attend Festival of Song return year after year for this popular musical event. No need to read music or think or yourself as a singer. Just bring your voice and a willingness to sing.

Singers are also welcome to join the event for the day on Saturday*

"Sarah and Gilo work together so well, and their uplift, taking space and time as needed for songs to settle, including everyone, embodies Othona principles"  Singer at the 2015 Festival of Song
