Singing for Pleasure
This group meets twice a month on Zoom. 2nd & 4th Wednesday mornings.
The group has vacancies.
The Singing for Pleasure Group invite you to join them on Wednesday 18th December from 10.30 am to Noon in St Matthew’s Choir Vestry, Chichester Road, Croydon and sing Christmas Carols and seasonal songs.
Please let us know if you are thinking of coming along so that we can have enough music and words for everyone. Use the 'pigeon post' above right to email the group co-ordinator.
SINGING – IT’S CHEAPER THAN THERAPY!
We sing arrangements of folk songs , old favourites and some lesser known ones, American Spirituals, popular melodies and show songs by people like Frank Sinatra and other entertainers. You don’t have to read music, just enjoy singing in a mixed group – we have enough members with a good understanding to help carry you along. We sing in three parts, the ladies singing the upper two lines of music and the gentlemen singing the lower one. The lower voices often carry the melody, while the others harmonise in two parts, sometimes three, which is very satisfying.
What we chiefly need now is more gentlemen singers, who would be very welcome.
We normally begin with breathing and vocal exercises, which are very beneficial for both body and mind. Then we sing through some of the songs we have in our repertoire – so that they are not forgotten – and then tackle something new. We hope there’s something for everyone – so just come along on Wednesday morning and discover the pleasure for yourself.
