You don't need to be able to read music, hold a tune or keep rhythm. The terrified and tone-deaf are welcome! There’s no audition and you won’t be put on the spot. You will find yourself in a group with people who, perhaps like you, have fears about singing or think they are no good at it. The emphasis is on fun, lifting our spirits and singing our hearts out, for the love of it! We will be singing Pop and Rock choir arrangements of contemporary music styles also Gospel, Soul, World, Jazz, Musical Theatre and Folk Choir styles with even African chants thrown in. Like a show choir, we use simple choreography to bring extra energy and impact to our performance - we're talking lifting arms and clapping rather than high kicks and spins though, so don't worry!
The beauty of our size is that we’re big enough for you to feel part of a powerful sound yet small enough so that you don’t feel lost and unimportant. Come along to a session and give it a try – you’ll be given a warm welcome and you won't be made to stand out in any way; you can even mime if you choose!
Our unique approach uses personal development techniques to boost confidence, self-esteem, healing, and leadership and team building skills because in these changing times we are always facing new challenges that our choirs and approach can help with.
It is so important to keep our spirits and confidence up and our health in tip top shape. Research consistently shows that people who use their creativity and particularly in music those who sing come out higher on the happiness statistics than almost any other social activity. See Alice Wignall’s article in The Guardian, Tuesday 26 August 2008 where she quotes Professor Grenville Hancox of the Sidney De Haan Research Centre for Arts and Health at
"The Sidney De Haan centre undertakes research and provides evidence to support their aim of getting the NHS to provide "singing on prescription." Professor Grenville Hancox, director of music at the university and co-director of the centre, says "Even if a person does it only once a month, it makes an extraordinary difference," ….It's a staggering thing"." "
When all is said and done you just have to come along yourself, try it and see.
