The West Bridgford Liberty Singers are an adult community choir. Meeting (roughly) every other Monday at Lutterell Hall in West Bridgford, we learn and sing pop songs from across the decades. There are no auditions and no need for previous experience as everything is taught is an easy to follow way, by ear. You definitely don’t need to be able to read music. We regularly perform at local events such as the West Bridgford Prom In The Park, The local lights switch on and have a regular slot at the Test Match Pub.
The benefits of group singing are immense. There’s well documented evidence that singing makes us feel a bit better, but I believe that this is amplified massively when we sing in groups. The sense of community which we have developed with this community choir is amazing. New friendships have been made and old ones consolidated. There are families who come together to sing (my mum and dad are both active members!) There’s always a feeling of being ‘in it together’, whether this be when we are learning new material or performing in public. We are strong together and this has a value for all of us.
New members are welcome at the start of each term. Fees are £5 per session with a £5 admin fee payable after the first session. We provide refreshments during the break and ask that you bring your own mug along to make tea.
Our next intake date is Monday 29th April. If you’re planing to come along, please get in touch either through email firstname.lastname@example.org or by joining the Facebook group ‘The West Bridgford Liberty Singers’ where you can mark yourself as attending in the events section. We will be learning new songs during this term so it’s important that you make it to the first session. If you miss it, the next intake will be in September. If you’re desperate to sing before then, there are other sessions running including a pop up choir in West Bridgford and workshops which are both open to non-choir members. Details of these events will be available here on the website and in the facebook group.
Please remember to mark yourself as attending in the Events section of the West Bridgford Liberty Singers Facebook group.
