It’s been an amazing summer this year, even if it has been a little too hot and dry at times. The good news is that autumn is on its way, a season of cool mists and fruitful mellowness.
It’s a time of change when many people think of taking up a new hobby. Have you ever considered harmony singing as part of a group?
Maybe you’ve never tried singing before, or perhaps you’ve been meaning to do more of it. In either case, choirmaster Chris Rowbury is here to help. Chris believes that everyone can sing (yes, even you!). With his gentle encouragement and finely honed teaching skills, you may find yourself with a new hobby and some new friends.
Chris holds a Sing Out Saturday in Hadleigh every third Saturday of the month. The next one is on Saturday 15th September at the Ansell Community Centre, Market Place, Hadleigh IP7 5DL. The singing starts at 10.30am (doors open 10.15am) and runs until 1pm with refreshments provided – all for just £8 per person.
Sessions are open to all: men and women, experienced singers and complete beginners alike. No musical experience is necessary, there are no auditions or solos, and no sheet music. Chris will soon have you singing in beautiful harmony even if you think you can’t ‘sing’.
Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary as all songs are taught by ear. All sessions are self-contained with new songs and different people each month. No commitment is required, just come to which ever Saturdays are convenient.
Since Sing Out Saturdays started in January 2016 they’ve tackled a wide range of songs. You can hear some on their website: www.singoutsaturdays.co.uk which also has all forthcoming dates and directions to the venue.
Chris Rowbury is based in Woodbridge. He has 30 years’ experience as a patient, charismatic teacher with a relaxed style laced with plenty of humour. He will get you singing in wonderful harmony in a matter of minutes.
