Singing together really is one of the best ways to break the ice and get to know each other, and although this is the end of the fourth session of the Social Services choir, it feels like the group has been together for far longer. We’ve been getting chattier and chattier! Some great personalities are starting to show, and in between all of the joking (and Gregg going on about his great shoes) we got great work done on our three songs, Lean on me, You make my dreams come true and Hounds of love.
The next few weeks will have the choir add another song to our repertoire, and (yes we have to!) a Christmas tune towards the end of the block. It’s easy for energy levels to drop in these cold winter months, but the group show no sign of slowing down with attendance still high. Some of the feedback is absolutely incredible!
“I can’t believe how quickly the time passes and how good I think we are beginning to sound”
“Hurry up weekend- I want Monday night now!”
“Just can’t wait, it’s such a good way of releasing tension, my shoulders are much less hunched. Being part of a harmonious group, makes you feel so good. thanks everyone.”
The choir will meet again on Monday, 4th November. It’s not too late to join; we have a firm emphasis on creating a welcoming and fun environment. All you need to do is bring your voice!
