- We resumed after the Christmas and New Year break with 53 singers. Some other regulars were absent due to illness or still on holiday. There is plenty of room for more and the New Year is a great time to try something new. We will all be learning some new songs next week so why not give singing with us a try?
- Six songs for choirs by musical director Janet Wood about the heritage of Retford have been published as a booklet with a professionally recorded teaching CD containing the vocal parts. See the Roam Around Retford tab for further information.
WHO ARE WE?
We are a lively choir for men and women of all ages who want to sing for pleasure. The choir was formed in September 2012 with the aim of providing opportunities for anyone from the local community to sing, regardless of musical experience, age or background and to meet other singers in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
We sing, unaccompanied and in harmony, a wide variety of songs drawn from folk, pop, gospel and world music - in fact anything with a good harmony. Learning is by listening and repetition using Natural Voice methods www.naturalvoice.net
There is no need to read music and no musical knowledge is required, though if you have some, that’s great. The result is a rich, enthusiastic sound but the emphasis is very much on singing for enjoyment rather than for polished performance.
"A unique singing experience"
