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?
Although it’s still November, the Express Yourself Pop Choir and Show Tunes Choir are already practising for Christmas!
The first outing for our Christmas repertoire is at the Lyppard Grange Community Centre’s Christmas Shopping Evening this Saturday (23rd November 2013) at 6:30pm. Entry is £1.50 and the centre is raising money for the charity Diabetes UK.
Our big Winter Show is on 14th December 2013 at Tudor Grange Academy Worcester. Tickets are £6.00 for adults, £3.50 for children and under 5s are free. There will be a charity raffle for the Worcester Women’s Refuge, which is our nominated charity for this year.
If you decide to come along, make sure you say hello!
Monday October 15th 2012 – I was sat eating my breakfast and listening to Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio One. Well actually I wasn’t sat, I was racing round trying to get the kids ready for school! I digress…. Nick announced that Ed Sheeran was going to be on the show the next day and he wanted listeners to send in their own versions of Ed’s songs. Well you don’t need to ask ME twice. Seconds later I’d sent an email to the whole of Express Yourself Pop Choir with instructions to brush their hair and wear their choir tops cos we were going to make a video!!
That night, at rehearsal, in super quick time, we created this video to send to Ed. I don’t know if he ever watched it but perhaps he did. I hope he enjoyed it because we certainly enjoyed making it!
So here it is! To Ed Sheeran with love from Express Yourself Pop Choir, Worcester xxxx
