A brand new choir is coming to York, as seen on ITV’s Royal Variety Performance – and here’s how you can get involved.
The Some Voices choir started in 2010 with just seven choir members, and has since grown to nearly 1,000 members singing in cities across the country – and now it’s York’s turn.
This new choir will encourage the people of York to come together in a relaxed environment to sing, socialize and work together to create performances.
Some Voices also strives to be inclusive – it’s open to everyone, with no audition or prior experience required. All you need is a love for singing.
In addition to the end-of-term shows, participants will also have the chance to take part in national shows.
Past performances have included singing with Keala Settle at the 2021 Royal Variety Performance at the Royal Albert Hall and recording the soundtrack for the 2019 BBC One Christmas advert.
“I am thrilled to bring the musical magic of Some Voices to the beautiful city of York,” said Hannah Blackett, leader of York Some Voices Choir.
“We’re going to shake off that blues, learn some amazing songs, and really start to feel the wellness benefits of singing.”
Rehearsals will take place at Southlands Methodist Church on Bishopthorpe Road, with numbers limited to allow for social distancing.
Free trial sessions are available – so anyone can come and try it out!
Spring rehearsals for Some Voices begin on Tuesday January 25 at 7 p.m.. Each term lasts 10 weeks and costs £100.
