THE 360′ WORKSHOP!
Bazil Meade MBE is the founder and director of the UK’s first gospel community choir London Community Gospel Choir.
Under his direction and tuition some of the industry’s finest gospel and R’n’B singers have blossomed and found successful careers and can be seen with artists such as Ellie Goulding, Madonna, Eric Clapton, Sam Smith, Damon Albarn, and Emili Sande.
He was the musical director of the production of the West End musical theme ‘Mama I want to sing’ and the BBC film ‘Hallelujah Anyhow’. It stands out for its neatness in the study sessions; A sample of his skills in the arrangements can be seen in the theme “Tender” of the Blur group, where he was responsible for the vocal arrangements.
His facet as a vocal coach is another area in which Bazil’s skills are highly appreciated and demanded. Over the years, he has taught famous singers as well as the hundreds of students who attend their vocal workshops, with the intention of learning or improving their singing skills.
OUR WORKSHOP LEADERS
We are proud to present the team that will support Bazil during the workshop:
Vocalist and Choir Director
Carla Jane started her musical journey growing up in a Pentecostal church, where vibrant energetic singing was the norm. Singing in front of audiences from as young as five years of age developed a confidence and a unique style that has earned her a strong reputation.
For the last 9 years Carla has worked as a vocal coach and choir director across numerous schools in Manchester and Liverpool. Carla currently serves as National Choir director for the New Testament Church of God, UK.
Artist, Producer, Writer, Musician
Renowned for his extraordinary musicianship and talent behind the drums, Leonn finally takes a step forward as a solo artist. His career in the music industry started back in 1999 when he was established as one of the most sought after session drummers stemming from the depths of the London music scene. As a singer he began experimenting with genres he loved most, blazing his vocals over RnB, Rock and Gospel but found his true love buried in Soul and Funk.
OUR MASTERCLASS SCHEDULE
It is with heavy hearts and a tear or two we have cancelled the 2nd edition of the Montegrotto European Gospel Festival programmed for June 2020.
