Sing your heart out in a warm, welcoming atmosphere

Make new friends in your community

The best thing about the choir is the people! It’s people of all ages and I always have a good chat and laugh, I would consider them all as friends. If the last time you sang was with a piano in school assembly, forget about that and try this. Lovely accapella songs from all over the world on nature and joy and all the good things. It will make your heart sing too. ”

A fantastic way to explore the beauty and power of communal singing in a relaxed and fun environment. Katie has a knack for putting everyone at ease and making you believe you can sing, and once we all get going, something magical happens. I think everyone should give it a go!”
