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.

Stage and Screen

What a fantastic year 2016 was for Express Yourself Pop Choir. We had two amazing concerts to raise money for the Myriad Centre in Worcester and now we’re all enjoying a break over Christmas.

However, while you’re all relaxing (well, at least I hope you are – for a few minutes at least) I’m busy trawling through all the suggestions for next term provided by the choir.

The final list is still a way off, but I’ll share some of the suggestions from the choir. Our theme is Stage and Screen so we’ll have a good spread of classic and modern show tunes with a bit of pop thrown in!

If you’re interested in joining us, our next rehearsal is on Monday 9th January at 7:30pm at the Lyppard Hub, Warndon Villages, Worcester.

Beggin’

We don’t need to beg you to come to pop choir! Not after you’ve seen how much fun we have!

So how about you come and try us out this Monday at 7:30pm at Lyppard Grange Community Centre.

Here’s a little taste of what we’ll be doing…

Running Up That Hill

No!! Don’t be silly! I haven’t got any daft New Year’s Resolutions involving running!

My New Year’s Resolution is to sing more… is that even possible?

If your resolution is to do something new, something musical, something fun or perhaps something “Just for you”, then come along to Express Yourself Pop Choir. We meet at 7:30pm every Monday in term-time at Lyppard Grange Community Centre, Worcester, WR4 0SY and sing fun pop songs and show tunes.

Here’s one by Kate Bush that we’ll be doing this week! Hope to see you there!

Shake it off

Whether it’s the post Christmas blues (yup!) or mean media coverage (less likely) it’s time to Shake it off with Taylor Swift!

Come and join the Express Yourself Pop Choir at Lyppard Grange Community Centre at 7:30pm for lots of fun!!

Here’s a bit of Taylor to help you get in the mood for a bit of pop!

Happy New Year 2015!

It’ll be a happy new year on 5th January 2015 when Express Yourself Pop Choir starts their new term.

Brand new year, brand new term and brand new songs. 

There’s no better time to join us. Everyone is welcome. 7:30pm on Mondays at Lyppard Grange Community Centre, Worcester WR4 0DZ. £5 per week.

Call Helen on 01905 747827 or email harussell@gmail.com if you want to come and sing.

Watch this space for details of the new songs!

New Term – New Songs

Express Yourself Pop Choir is taking a break now over the summer holidays but we’ll be back as usual on Monday nights at 7:30pm at Lyppard Grange Community Centre from Monday 1st September 2014

All new songs in September – so I’ll be busy over the summer break choosing the best of current and classic pop with some funky show tunes to add a bit of cheese!!

Have a great summer and see you in September!

 

All New Pop Choir

So last night we had a record number of singers at Pop Choir! Because we’ve joined forces with the Show Tunes Choir!

Instead of coming out on two different nights for Pop Song and Show Tunes, you can now come to one all singing, all dancing (well not so much of the dancing!) super choir!!

No need to choose! Come and do both!!

Mondays at 7:30pm at Lyppard Grange Community Centre, Warndon Villages, Worcester WR4 0DZ. Give Helen a call on 01905 747827 if you’re interested in joining us!

See you there!!

Roar with Worcester’s Pop Choir

For months now I’ve been calling this next song the Eye of the Tiger!! So just to clarify to the members of the Express Yourself Pop Choir – no we’re not singing that song from Rocky!!! It’s Katy Perry’s latest!

If you want to join us this term then our first rehearsal is this Monday 6th January 2014 at 7:30pm at Lyppard Grange Community Centre, Worcester. Just give Helen a call on 01905 747827 or email harussell@gmail.com. 

Anyway, just in case you’ve been checking out the wrong song, here’s Katy Perry with ROAR!! No boxing shorts for us this time!

Happy New Year

Well 2013 was a fantastic year for Express Yourself Pop Choir and Express Yourself Show Tunes Choir. We found a fabulous new concert venue at Tudor Grange Academy Worcester and had three cracking shows there. Plus a wonderful workshop and concert at the Worcester Music Festival 2013.

But here we are in 2014 ready for another exciting year. This September will see the fifth anniversary of our first rehearsal, who knew then what was to be in store!

Perhaps you’ve made a New Year’s Resolution to make more music, to join a contemporary community choir or just to make new friends. If so, then joining one of our fun non-audition choirs is the answer! There’s no need to read music and everyone is welcome. Join our mixed Express Yourself Pop Choir, which meets on Mondays at 7:30pm. You can pay weekly if you’re not sure you can commit, or monthly or termly to get a discount.

Just give me a ring on 01905 747827 or email harussell@gmail.com
