Some Voices choir to open in York this month
A NATIONAL choir, recently seen on ITV’s Royal Variety Performance, is launching a new branch in York this month.
Described by BBC Radio as “the UK’s most exciting auditionless pop choir”, Some Voices is “excited” to start rehearsals in York.
“I am so excited to bring the musical magic of Some Voices to beautiful York. We’re going to get rid of that blues, learn some amazing songs, and really start to feel the wellness benefits of singing, ”said Hannah Blackett, conductor of Some Voices York.
This new choir offers the local community the opportunity to come together in a relaxed environment to sing and socialize, working together to create shows at the end of each term.
York members will be part of a new, friendly network of choristers across the country and will have the chance to get involved in national performance opportunities.
Starting January 25 at 7 p.m., rehearsals will be held at the Southlands Methodist Church in Bishopthorpe Road. No audition is required to join the “all-inclusive” choir, but the number will be limited to allow social distancing to ensure everyone’s comfort and safety. Free tastings are also available for anyone to attend and try.
