"The only thing better than singing is more singing!" - Ella Fitzgerald
Why join a choir?
Nothing but benefits, physically, socially and mentally....I can't really say it any better than this article...
Why join THIS choir?
This choir is not going to bring you fame, turn you into a brilliant soloist or make you a superb sightsinger but the sense of achievement, community and quiet enjoyment will make rehearsals something you don't want to miss. Although you don't need to be able to read music at all you will gradually find yourself getting to the point where it becomes easier to have the music in front of you than not and you'll find that you have been picking up notation skills without realising! Rehearsal recordings of each vocal part for more difficult pieces are uploaded online for choir members to practise with which speeds learning considerably and means we can tackle a lot of music quickly without rehearsals getting dull and repetetive. The real mix of musical styles tackled means you are constantly kept on your toes expanding your musical repertoire, your memory and your abilities. Singing for local events and concerts give you that extra buzz of nerves and performance highs that can really pull a group together. Working towards our big staged events such as with Merry Hell at Snape Maltings, Zimbé at the Ipswich Corn Exchange or Carmina Burana and Mozart's Requiem at the Royal Albert Hall with the Really Big Chorus is a real workout but pays off with a fantastic and memorable experience at the end.
Where and When?
The only evening Rabble Chorus group meets on Thursdays, 8 - 9.30 pm at Easton Village Hall, Easton, Suffolk (and occasionally at the White Horse pub too!). Each session costs £5 and you only pay for those you are able to attend. (See below for more details).
The Woodbridge Rabble runs on Tuesday mornings at 10.30 a.m, The LongShed, Woodbridge, running along identical lines and costs but during the morning for those people who can't always get out in the evenings.
The Needham Market Rabble Chorus runs on Wednesday mornings at 10.30 a.m Needham Market Community Centre (behind the High Street), also costs £5 per session attended.
The Saxmundham Rabble Chorus meets on Thursday mornings 10.30 - 12.00 at the Gannon Rooms just behind the high street. Each session costs £5, all welcome.
One payment per attendant week only, whether you attend just one, two, three or all four sessions! If your financial situation is such that you cannot afford to pay every week please come anyway, I would rather you were with us singing for free than worrying about it, just pay when you can but on other weeks, come along without signing in so that it doesn't play havoc with the accounts! Thankyou.
