Welcome to the singhealthy Choirs Website
If you want to come along and sing with us then we will be very happy to welcome you to any of our choir rehearsals.
This is a particularly exciting time for all our choirs with a number of concert opportunities being planned. All four choirs are involved in a variety of performances and a full list can be found by following this link – singHealthy 2013 Concerts
We do try hard to get the balance right between developing our singing and choral style and having a good time each and every time we sing and meet together. All our choirs are social as well as musical activities and we don’t forget that you give up your leisure time to join us.
One way we re-enforce the social aspect is by ensuring that every rehearsal has time for all choir members to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a good chat together. Our Musical Director is pretty insistent that a cup of tea and biscuit is available at every rehearsal (probably because he is desperate for one himself and won’t drink alone!!)
There is no charge for refreshments at any of our choir rehearsals.
We do sing a varied song list and this is always growing. Good popular songs from the past like California Dreamin’ through to modern songs such as Make You Feel My Love, a big hit for Adele, are all arranged for four part harmony. You can see a full list of our current repertoire by following this link – singHealthy Current Choir Songs.
We are particularly proud of our song list and we know that’s it’s the reason some new members join with us. Because both our Musical Director and Accompanist have a hand in arranging the songs we sing, we are not tied to just what’s available from the music publisher. Choir members often suggest songs currently in the charts and some of these have been incorporated into our rehearsal list.
We prove that choirs do not need to be stuffy. We also believe that singing in a choir should also challenge us to explore our boundaries and develop new skills. We ensure that when you come and hear our choir yuou get just that – our choir making the music. All our soloists are from within the choir membership and some had never sung solo’s before but they get confidence from being part of a supportive group of people.
We hope you will explore the site, look at what we are, where we are and what we stand for, then make a decision to come along and see for yourself. No auditions, no pressure probably the lowest weekly subscription fees around and of course, that welcome cup of tea.
We look forward to welcoming to one of our choirs very soon.
