New Year – New Adventure?

Choir Landscape BannerHave you always wanted to join a choir? How about adding it to your list of New Year’s Resolutions and joining us at Express Yourself Pop Choir.pixabay singersThis term we’re working towards our big summer show in July. We’ve chosen the best songs from the current decade, some cheesy and some with wonderfully gorgeous harmonies. It’ll be hard to beat our Winter Show “Ain’t Misbehavin” with our fantastic Jazz Band from Second Line Jazz but we’d love you to come and help us try! We think the party atmosphere will be infectious!

First rehearsal of the term is 7:30pm on Monday 8th January 2018 at 7:30pm at Lyppard Hub, Warndon Villages, Worcester. No auditions and everyone’s welcome. Call Helen on 01905 747827 or email helen@expressyourselfchoir.com

Les Misérables

Have you always wanted to be in a choir? Why not join our friendly, non-auditioned choir at Lyppard Hub, Warndon Villages, Worcester on Monday 9th January 2017 at 7:30pm. All adults are welcome, regardless of experience or ability.

I’m not the only member of Express Yourself Pop Choir that loves Les Mis! We had a choir trip to London to see it a couple of years ago, and even our less enthusiastic members were blown away. Some of the songs have amazing harmonies, others have intricate weaving of different melodies from previous solos. However, “Do You Hear The People Sing” is simple and yet dramatic. A great song that is used again for great effect as the finale!

Did you know that it was only re-used as the full ensemble finale when the English language version was produced. The original French version didn’t include it.

If you want to sing great songs with us this term then come along on Monday!

Matilda

As you know, I’m currently working my way through all my favourite pop songs and musicals to put together next term’s repertoire for Express Yourself Pop Choir. Our first rehearsal is Monday 9th January 2017 and we always welcome new members with open arms so pop along to Lyppard Hub, Warndon Villages, Worcester WR4 0SY. We’re a community choir so there are no auditions and everyone is welcome.

A couple of years ago I organised choir trip to London to see Matilda. It was a fantastic day and an amazing show. There are so many great songs but I have a particular soft spot for Naughty and the super cute When I Grow Up.

I love watching this medley of the two songs from a Royal Variety Performance.
