From high to low voices, we have a part for everyone
Did you sing at school or do you sing along with your MP3 player? Enjoy Karaoke or sing in the shower? Need to get out, enjoy life, learn and improve your singing skills and make new friendships?
If you want to sing in a happy friendly invigorating fun choir/chorus then come and try us out. We are always on the lookout for singers to join us and you don’t need to be able to read music as we provide practice recordings. And if you do read music, then we provide that too and we guarantee to give you an inspiring experience that sets us apart from choirs with pianos or backing tracks.
We are a varied group of women of all ages and backgrounds and there is a place on the risers for everyone that can hold a tune. We want people with high voices, very low voices and even more people for the two parts in the middle. And you don't have to be perfect, as that is what rehearsals are all about.
And it's not all about the singing. It's also about friendship and socializing. We go to the pub at least every Third Thursday, watch shows and concerts, socialize and have meals out.
Our monthly subs (2019) are £22 that include all music, LABBS membership, top quality coaching, running costs and many of your costumes. We are a non-profit making community group and offer good value for money. You will be expected to attend LABBS convention each October, regular rehearsals and coaching sessions. Extra costs at the convention would be hotel rooms (that we try and keep as low as possible), convention passes and food/fuel etc.
What happens next?
Please come along to our next rehearsal and you can join in and see what we do. You will be asked to sing to the Music Director in private, so she can decide which voice part you are most suited to sing. This is mainly to see how high and low you can go and what voice type you have.
Then you will be given a simple audition song to learn (with learning tracks and sheet music) and it will usually be something that we are currently singing. When you have learned the song, we then check if you can hold your part in a small group (with plenty of support). We are not looking for perfection as we know this can be nerve wracking, but we are looking for "good enough" and ability to learn. If all goes well, then you can join the glorious ranks of 40 plus years of singers and become a full member of the chorus. And that is the start of a beautiful journey.
If this sounds like fun, come and join us every Thursday from 7.30 -9.45 pm at:
