Improv Fun – Playshop with Choir Director & Festival Co-ordinator – Jillie Toogood 

Let go of all the rules and find your inner doo wop!

In this playshop we will explore the creative aspects of improvisation and how this can free up your voice and your choir. Everybody can take part – if you don’t want to doo… you can always wop! If you are a budding soloist or a much needed back-up singer – this playshop is for you. No experience needed.


Jillie has been leading groups for over twelve years and has been involved in weekly improvisation playshops, performance choirs and choirs just for fun. She has also taken a support role in a singing program offered at the Christchurch Women’s Prison.

As a member of the English based, Natural Voice Network, she believes that it is everybody’s birthright to sing. Her love of improvisation has been her long-time passion and she loves to share this ‘playtime’ with others.

Her favourite quote:

Use what talents you possess, the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best”

“Henry Van Dyke
