Sandra Baxter is the Musical Director and Founder of BroadBeat Choir.
In 2012 I formed BroadBeat Choir because I couldn't find a choir that I wanted to join. I wanted a choir that was fun, sang songs I knew, that I only paid for
when I went and was lighthearted. Little did I know then how the BroadBeat 'family' would grow not only in numbers, but thanks to our wonderful members, become so much more than just a choir.
We have supported a different local charity each year by receiving donations for whole choir performances. Individual members have also raised money through sponsorship and holding coffee
mornings. We have also sung at member's weddings and supported them in other groups they belong to. Our members' ages range from twenties to eighties. We learn songs by ear so there
is no need to be able to read music, lyric sheets and song parts can be accessed via the members' area of the website so you can practice between sessions and catch up if you've not been able to
Our annual birthday party brings everyone together as we entertain and support each other, with some members performing in small groups or solos. Performance
pieces are closely guarded secrets and members get together and rehearse outside of the sessions. We also have a Breakfast Club, meeting on the first Sunday of each month and try different
venues which are announced at choir or on the Facebook page. I'll see you there at around 9.30am! Feel free to bring partners or friends.
When you join BroadBeat Choir you will be joining a wonderful group of people who are caring, supportive and great fun to be with. Come along and see for
yourself, you can join at any time. It's a great opportunity to meet new people and make friends. Bring along pencil with a rubber on the end and a mug for tea break.
I look forward to meeting you,
