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 rehearsal practice is 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 (2018) are £20 that includes all music, LABBS membership, coaching, running costs and many of the costumes. We are a non-profit making community group and offer good value for money. You would be expected to attend LABBS convention each October where possible and the regular rehearsals and coaching session. 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. You may sing any song you like simple or just something you love, but most people choose Happy Birthday or something similar! Once we have both have decided on your part, you will be given a simple song to learn with a learning track and sheet music. When you are happy that you have learned the song you can try it out and see if you can sing your part in a small group (with support from your own part section leader). 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:
