Charity Concert at Witard Road Baptist Church - December 2013
Museum of the Broads Charity Fundraising evening - 2013

We are a fun and informal choir singing songs from the shows, charts and films, past and present. Music brings people together! We're a very varied group of people, all bound by our love of singing, and men and women of all abilities can join us. Everyone is warmly welcomed and, as well as practising hard to achieve a high musical standard, it’s all about the spirit of fun and conviviality.  

  

We have 3 main groups: The 'Men's Department', 'Hinges' and 'Brackets'.  The 'Hinges' tend to sing the main melody whilst the 'Brackets' sing accompaniment and harmonies.  We find that ladies who are Altos usually find the 'Hinges' within their range, whilst the 'Brackets' tend to be the home of our Sopranos and those with a slightly higher range than Altos.  The 'Men's Department' consists of Bass and Tenors and sometimes ladies whose voices have matured and are slightly lower than the Altos.  The men always make the ladies very welcome to their department (and they bring a sense of order! Sssh, don't tell the men I said that).

 

Come and join us! We’re always happy to welcome new people, whatever their ability or experience.

Sandra Edwards is the Musical Director for BroadBeat Choir.  We are also members of the National Association of Choirs and Natural Voice Practitioners Network.

Do I need to audition to join your choir?

Absolutely not.  We welcome people of all levels and abilities.  People are often shy to begin with when they start singing with the group but once they realise no-one is staring at them they relax and really enjoy themselves!

I can't read music

That doesn't matter.  We learn mainly from lyric sheets and by ear.  Some people like to look at the music and jot down some notes but it isn't necessary.  In the future music may be available for some songs but you would only need to follow the words.

I'm not sure of my voice type

It's fine we'll help you with that when you get here.  We have a 'Men's Department', 'Hinges' who tend to sing the main melody and for a slightly lower range / typically 'Alto', and 'Brackets' who tend to sing accompaniment, harmonies and are the higher voice range.  Some people prefer to sing the main melody and if they want to do that I'm perfectly happy.  The groups sometimes divide to provide further harmonies, but often there will be just 3 sections.

How much does it cost?

We don't have joining fees or direct debits.  You pay just £4 when you come along and that includes refreshments, but please bring your own mug so I don't have to wash up.  If you come along to 2 sessions in one week the second costs just £3.
