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 working towards achieving a great sound, it’s all about the spirit of fun and team work.  

DO I NEED TO AUDTION TO JOIN THE 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 £5 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, third and fourth sessions are free.   PAY-AS-YOU-SING.

BroadBeat Choir - for adults who love to sing

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 attend.

 

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,

 

Sandra
