Singing in a friendly, supportive environment
WHAT DO WE DO?
Traditionally we were a group of men who enjoy singing together. To expand our appeal to both new members and audiences, we are now inviting females to join us, therefore we will become a mixed chorus. There are great health benefits to singing - both physical and mental. We all enjoy the "buzz" we get from peforming and when we perform for an audience, the response is always uplifting.
WHERE DO WE PRACTISE?
We rehearse on Monday afternoons at Galleywood Heritage Centre, Off Margaretting Road, The Common, Galleywood, Chelmsford. CM2 8TR.
All are welcome including friends, wives, partners, guests. You can come along just to listen, or join in for a few taster sessions.
DO I NEED TO READ MUSIC?
You do not need to be able to read music to sing barbershop. We provide "teach tracks" to help individuals learn their part and every new member is assigned a "buddy" who will assist with any questions and support their learning.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Taster sessions are free. We allow new members up to 6 taster sessions before deciding whether they wish to join fully. Currently, because of our small number of members, fees are £5.00 per month, when our member numbers pick up and move to a larger premises they could be £25 per month (£10 for under 26's). These costs will be under review.
