We are a choir for anyone over 16yrs old who can’t sing!

We meet on Wednesdays 7.15 pm – 8.30 pm at the Family Life Centre on Cemetery Road, Southport (near to Ash Street lights).

Please contact the email address below if you would like to go on the waiting list to join us. Such is our popularity at the moment that we’re afraid that we cannot currently accommodate new members. We’ll let you know via this website when we have spaces πŸ™‚

Dates for your Diary


There will be no choir practice until further notice, however we have organised a virtual choir to stay connected and in touch with each other. If you are a current choir member and would like to join in then please email us at the address below. 😁🎡🎢

 

All forthcoming performance dates have been postponed until it is safe to meet again.

 



Songs for Members to Practice

It would be an enormous help if all choir members could become familiar with them and even try to learn the words if possible!

We made it to the front page on Christmas Day 2019! Continuing to spread the joy of singing as well as an important road safety message πŸ™‚

 

 

 

Merseyside Road Safety Policing Team asked us to sing a festive song they had written to help keep our roads safe at Christmas. We think we did a pretty good job!

Health Benefits of Singing

Singing boosts the immune system, strengthens the heart and muscles and reduces blood pressure.

Singing improves self-esteem and confidence and gives you improved concentration and memory recall.

Singing connects you with other people and makes you feel part of a community!

We sing a variety of songs from a variety of eras and genres and when we are practicing the words will be on a large screen to read.

Although individually we think we can’t sing, as a group when we come together we happen to make a nice noise! With that in mind we do take part in public performances from time to time.

If performing is not your thing you are welcome to come along on a Wednesday just to have a singalong!

We aren’t professional musicians and we aren’t able to teach you to sing! We are just enthusiastic amateurs and are keen to spread the joy and health benefits of singing!

“Singing is a basic human activity as fundamental to our well being as laughter.”
