We are always looking for new members. The only rule is that you must be 16 or over and 16/17 year olds must be accompanied by an adult.
The choir caters for those who want to drop in and those who attend every week. We all have busy lives! You can join at any point in the term. If you don't recognise the material don't worry! You'll pick it up gradually so allow a few weeks to settle in.
Sing17 is made up of 3 choirs, united under one choir leader.
We share in common:
A commitment to our community
A belief in the power of singing
Absolutely no auditions
No requirement to read music
We know that one singing style does not fit all. Each choir has a distinct feel all of its own.
Zoom in for a free taster session and take your pick...
Sing 17 Community Choir. Mondays 7.30-8.30 pm
Sing 17 Community Choir has a hearty, happy go lucky approach. Our choice of material is eclectic and wide ranging. We sing several songs per session in three parts to keep the endorphins going. Mash-ups grow out of members’ suggestions and work-shopping sessions.
Sing 17 Day Choir. Wednesdays 2-3pm
Sing 17 Day choir is gently paced and mellow. We enjoy being part of a group and singing together for relaxation. Our choice of material is varied and often springs from our own suggestions. We sing several songs per session in two or three parts. Sing healthy, sing happy.
Sing17 Mixtape Choir. Wednesday 7-8pm
Sing 17 Mixtape choir draw material from post 60s indie, soul and pop (but mainly 80's bangers!) and for us the song is the thing: we explore harmonies and enjoy interpreting and polishing songs together. We focus on one song per session in up to four parts.
