This group does not practise for any performances. WE SING FOR FUN.
If you enjoy singing along to music at home or in the car, that’s all you need to join our sessions. Singing together sounds good when you just have fun and can make a few mistakes. It also is well-known to lift your spirits and ease away your worries for a while, so join us for an easy-going singing group. We’ll sing pop songs, hits from musicals, silly songs, rock songs and more. Let your endorphins flow and experience the buzz one gets from singing. That’s what singing does. Simply singing makes you grin. This is not a choir. Lyrics will be shown on screen and you do not need to read sheet music. Just bring your enthusiasm..
