The Coastal Voices Choir will begin its new term in September – find out how to join here
The choir will resume evening rehearsals at Emmanuel Church on Cardigan Road between 7 and 9 p.m.
Music Director Alex Weatherhill will, once again, be at the helm using all of his experience and skills from his time in the West End and on the touring circuit.
All musical arrangements are written specifically for the band with easy-to-follow sheet music (although you don’t need reading experience to join) and recorded vocals, so the tunes can be practiced at home as well as rehearsals.
A spokesperson for the choir said: “People often think they can’t sing or hold a harmony, but with the help of Alex anything is possible and you can find your inner Diva or Divo.
“Before our summer holidays we took part in various gigs including: the Old Town Festival, Race the Waves weekend, the Bridlington Pride event and finally our own hit show Party at the Priory.
“Back at our rehearsals, the members will be preparing for various concerts, including the hugely popular Lions Christmas Concert.
“As well as rehearsing for our shows, we’re a very friendly bunch and have our own social secretary who organizes various activities, from restaurant meals, theater visits and sometimes just a ‘good ole knee-up’ at the local.
“It’s well documented that singing is good for your overall health and well-being.
“Without a doubt, after our Monday singing sessions, we would all agree that it’s true and we come back absolutely buzzing! The price per session is €5.
“Membership is open to anyone over the age of 16. There are no scary auditions, so if you like singing and making new friends, you’ll be welcome to give us a try.”
