If you are an experienced singer, we are glad to have you aboard.
But you don’t need to be an experienced singer to join us;
nor do you have to be able to read music.
What you need is enthusiasm!
Nobody comes to Soundswell able to sing everything perfectly.
We have a mantra that goes:
"In this choir there are no wrong notes, just interesting variations!"
If you enjoy singing,
or used to sing but have not done so for a while,
or you think you can’t sing but would like to give it a go,
and you live in or near Nottingham, then
could be your most exciting, song-filled evening of the week!
Our rehearsals are 2 hours long with a 15 minute break in the middle.
Do, please, bring a bottle of water, and
feel free to bring a hot drink to enjoy in the break.
The atmosphere at rehearsals is very friendly and supportive.
Singing with other people has a great ‘feel good’ factor.
We recognise this and make the most of it.
Our members who have, or have had, serious health issues will tell you
their weekly dose of Soundswell makes them feel tons better.
Before we begin singing, there are vocal warm-ups and
breathing exercises to help us get the best from our voices.
Most weeks we sing a round that we learn on the spot, without using music.
Then we work through our termly repertoire, improving our songs a little each week.
We work hard, but somehow it never feels like hard work.
Our rehearsals are full of laughter and enjoyment.
And we do produce a lovely sound – we constantly amaze ourselves!
You will be very welcome to join us
We meet at 7pm on Tuesday nights at Nottingham High SchoolPhone 0115 752 7872 for more information.
