It can be a little nerve racking joining a choir. BUT…
What will people think? What will they say? Will they talk to me? What if I can’t read music very well? What if I haven’t done much singing? Where do I sit?
All good questions and when you come along we have an orientation night. An experienced choir member will sit with you. We’ll answer any questions you might have, give you a welcome pack and give you tea and cake at half time.
The most important advice we can offer is that, and it’s simple; give yourself time to settle in. This may take a few weeks. Ask for help if needed. It’s a big deal joining something new and we totally get that you might feel intimidated, out of your comfort zone, worried about making mistakes.
Happily, we are not a snobby choir. There is no committee, no long and tedious discussions. No egos. We just sing, learn, make friends, work together and get things done; great things done by local people for the local community. Our choir is full of singers who either never thought they’d be in a choir or had given up on finding one that wasn’t run for the benefit of a few people!
You’ll make friends, you’ll have fun and you’ll sing better. You’ll help raise much-needed money for local charities.
It’s all good!
