Today I have mostly been listening to Seasons of Love from Rent for Pop Choir. It’s going to be part of our repertoire for next term (starting Monday January 6th 2014). None of the choir have sung it before so it’s the perfect time to start with us. In fact we’re doing all new songs this term so that all new starters are in the same boat as the rest of us!
If you’re interested in joining us then give me a call on 01905 747827. We meet at Lyppard Grange Community Centre, Worcester WR4 0DZ. It’ll be great to see you.
In the meantime here’s the cast of Rent singing Seasons of Love.
Merry Christmas to all of the past, present and future singers from the Express Yourself Choirs and our audiences!
You’ll be pleased to know that before I switched off my brain for Christmas I carefully selected the songs for next term! Term starts on Monday 6th January 2014 at Lyppard Grange Community Centre, Worcester WR4 0DZ.
Singing is such a wonderful hobby. Perhaps you are thinking of joining a choir as one of your New Year Resolutions. If you are interested in joining there are spaces. Just give me a ring on 01905 747827.
It seems like only yesterday that I put up a little poster at Lyppard Grange Community Centre in Worcester, looking for like-minded singers to start a community choir.
Here we are 5 years later thinking about our fifth anniversary concert!
Well we have the date and the venue – now for the songs!
Over the last five years we have learnt over 200 fantastic pop songs and show tunes! I think we should make this anniversary concert a “Best of”.
So get your thinking caps on! Which songs have been your favourites?
About The Express Yourself Choirs
In 2009 I created Express Yourself Community Choir in Worcester. I wanted to make music fun and accessible to all, regardless of ability. It went from strength to strength and I soon realised that there was a real demand for fun, relaxed, audition free music making. I could utilise my qualities as a teacher and musician whilst helping the community learn how rewarding making music can be. My philosophy is that everyone can sing make music and have fun. All people need is an opportunity, encouragement and self-confidence. Now we are called Express Yourself Pop Choir and we sing Pop Songs and the very best modern Show Tunes.
