Ilkley & District U3A

Name:

Singalong 4 FUN

Description:

Do you love to sing but are concerned that you are not “good enough” for a more formal choir?

We sing just for the joy of it. No concerts to prepare for, no audience to judge us. No commitment to come to every meeting.

A small relaxed fortnightly singing group of 20+ members. There is no Choir Master but we do have two excellent pianists. We will sing popular songs from yesteryear. Suggestions for additions to the programme are welcome.  Every session is run by a "Chairman" in that they will organise the songs we are going to sing. Song sheets will be produced and handed round. No musical knowledge is required.  We sing together, not in parts.


Occasionally a small group of the members go as a "Concert Party" to Care Homes, but there is no commitment for all members to do this.

The Singing for Pleasure group meets to sing and enjoy music. We  sing music from the 13th to the 20th century, some serious some less so and from many countries. Music from any repertoire can be sung and members are actively encouraged to suggest new works.

Sessions will last 2 hours with a coffee break after an hour. The first hour will consist of warm-ups etc. plus learning new works or working on existing pieces and the final 45 minutes  consists of members’ choices.

Musical knowledge is always useful but this group is open to anyone who enjoys singing.
