CALLING

 

Enthusiasts of progressive popular music, who are wishing to experience the connection of singing in a choir, and the creative potential of being part of a musical community. 

Keen vocalists, who want to sing at an advanced level that attracts exciting opportunities to work with inspiring artists and collaborators, and who are able to invest in the rehearsal process which makes this possible.
 

Solid foundation skills in rhythm, pitch, harmony, vocal technique, with desire to develop and grow as a singer. 

A love of people, and a healthy attitude towards collaboration.

A desire to use music to promote wellbeing, community and sustainability.

 

 

REHEARSALS

 

Each rehearsal begins with 30 mins of warm-up and technical skill building that develop ear training, vocal technique, agility, expression, improvisation, support, breathing, rhythm, voice blending, vocal health, mind-body awareness and musical team building. 

 

We have a 10-15 minute break half-way through each session. We work towards one main, bespoke performance per term, which may be in collaboration with an external artist, and our repertoire for the term will be focused around this. 

 

Due to the advanced nature of the material and limitations on time, scores and recordings for material are given ahead of rehearsals, for singers to prepare parts ready to sing with others. Rehearsal time is then used to enjoy bringing parts together as a whole and refining them, without long periods of teaching time and waiting. Sessions include practise time with your section, to check-in with parts and get to know people. 

 

Total practise time outside of sessions is estimated at being 30 mins - 1 hr per week depending on how new you are to the material. 

In general, we aim to work towards a high standard in a way that is informal, fun and

prioritises wellbeing and inclusivity.  Please see our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Policy, behind the scenes instagram, or email us to get more of a sense of our rehearsal approach & ettiquette.
