We sing all kinds of songs from jazz standards, folk songs, classical pieces, show tunes, pop songs and even the occasional madrigal.

Our songbook currently includes:

We put on a Summer Concert each year. We perform at the U3A Carol Service. And for the first time in March 2018, we took part in the Bedfordshire Music Festival. We MAY take part again....

THE SCIENCE BIT
The benefits of singing have been proved. Singing exercises the brain AND the body, and improves breathing, posture and muscle tension. Singing in a choir has been shown to release neurochemicals such as β-endorphin, a natural painkiller responsible for the 'high' experienced after intense exercise. It's possible that music can play a role in sustaining a healthy immune system by reducing the stress hormone cortisol and boosting the immunoglobulin A antibody.

TO PUT IT ANOTHER WAY everyone leaves their choir practice smiling and with a spring in their step!

NO AUDITIONS. IF YOU CAN SPEAK, YOU CAN SING!!!
