Venue: St Peter's Church Hall, St Peter's-in-the-Fields, off St Peter's Road Bocking End - limited parking at rear of church.
Frequency: Monthly - First Tuesday of the month at 2.00pm (Occasional changes - check 'Dates for your diary', below)
As the group's title suggests, we sing for fun, NOT to prepare for a performance, except when we help lead the singing at Braintree Area U3A events (e.g. Christmas).
To give ourselves a challenge we do try out a bit of harmonising and tackle more challenging pieces (some in languages other than English!) from time to time. Our rendering of the Welsh national anthem using phonetic text has to be heard to be believed...
Our repertoire is chosen by the members and their volunteer leader and consists of a wide variety of classical and popular music, including songs from the musicals, opera/operetta, pieces made famous by the likes of Pat Boon, Johnny Mathis, Katherine Jenkins, Hayley Westenra...you name it, we try it. Nothing is ruled out providing it is not illegal, immoral or fattening. Even Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" has endured - no, enjoyed - the SFP treatment.
We use projected lyrics, with a paper copy provided on request.
No auditions, no 'awkward questions'. What are you waiting for? Come and join us! "Try before you buy" - you are very welcome to come along and see whether our informal group is your cup of tea before committing yourself.
