We had the initial meeting of the singing group.
We discussed the when, where and how, all agreeing that we want to sing for fun and enjoy singing. And we still need an accompanist!
For the time being we will meet in members homes. In the future we will probably need to hire a hall in which to meet.
We are looking forward to increasing our repertoire in 2018 and enjoying the health benefits of singing in a group. There has been a lot of publicity on television and in the media about the benefits of singing, lowering blood pressure, lessening depression, anxiety, and improving breathing difficulties. So if the grey days of winter are getting you down come and join us for a morning of fun and improve your
health at the same time.
We sing a variety of music such as The Beatles, songs from musicals and folk genre and much more. We meet on the 3rd Thursday morning of the month and no singing experience is necessary. Some songs are unaccompanied and others accompanied by a guitar. We have yet to settle on a permanent venue and we would be delighted to hear from anyone who could accompany the group.
The group still needs someone who can play the piano, keyboard, guitar or another musical instrument to accompany the singing.
