A SUMMARY

Come and immerse yourself in the shared joy of singing. A chance to learn simple, beautiful, delightful, moving songs, part songs and rounds; easy to learn and a pleasure to sing. This group is not a formal choir, there will be no written score, rarely any written words, just our collective immersion in the melodies and harmonies that we'll bring alive with our voices. The songs are suitable for all ages and any musical ability. They express and explore the wonderful spectrum of human thoughts and feelings, giving voice to our inner landscapes. The fundamental purpose of this singing is to revel in ourselves as instruments and to discover and enjoy our own voices.

Learning aims

To be able to sing a wide variety of lovely songs by heart and to really love doing so, and to be able to share them with others.

Strengths to develop

Singing in a group requires a level of confidence and openness. To be willing to give our voice to the space and to each other means that we will need to trust each other and feel free enough to express ourselves.
