Who we are

 

I’m Naomi and one of the Founding Leaders of Sing! I’ve been singing in choirs since I was nine years old and also play the piano (although I get really scared playing in public!). My responsibilities in the choir is to choose with other members of the team the songs to sing, to find teachers for our workshops, conductors to help with our concerts, and to organise the weekly rehearsals as well as running teaching & conducting workshops.  Outside of choir I enjoy walking, singing in an a cappella group, and drinking tea!

 

Hello, I’m Tizzy and I sing as tenor. I have been part of the Sing! Leadership team since the choir started in 2012. I enjoy sharing my passion for music with all ages, both with our choir members and the children I work with in schools. I love finding any excuse to have a choir social and have a boogie along to our songs and love enthusing people to get involved with our Sing! community.

I’m Bethany.  I’m one of the Founders of Sing! and really happy to still be one of its musical directors many years on! I love arranging songs for the choir, teaching and conducting, and always get a buzz when a song comes together and I can see the delight on everyone’s faces! Inspired in part by my experience with Sing!, I’ve since qualified as a music therapist and now work with children with special needs and adults in palliative care, sharing the joy of music with those who need it most.

  Hello I’m Bekki and I’ve been a member of Sing! since we started in 2012. I am the Secretary which means you will get an email from me every week telling you everything you need to know about what is happening.

 

 

 

I’m Shona and joined Sing! in January 2015. I’d been looking for a choir for a while and I’m so glad I found Sing!  It’s an evening when I can be me for a few hours having a laugh and enjoying singing a wonderful variety of songs. It’s a wonderful community and I’ve learnt lots of new things, and not just about music. I wanted to give something back to the group and so I am the Event Organizer – lots of socials to come in the near future to get to know each other better!  Outside of choir I am mum to 2 boys and I enjoy walking our Samoyed                                                               dog, and being crafty!

I’m Anna and I’m having great fun on the Sing! Committee as part of the Music Team.  I absolutely love being part of the choir.  Singing and working together to make beautiful music is a very special experience and one I am very proud to be part of.  On the music team I am involved in choosing the songs we sing, arranging warm ups and helping at rehearsals. I have particularly enjoyed part teaching and conducting this term. Outside of choir I am a secondary teacher by trade and currently work as an Education Officer while I bring up my                                                                       three little girls all of whom love to sing!

I joined choir last October to meet local friendly people, and Sing! came highly recommended – and it hasn’t disappointed! I’ve enjoyed singing in concerts for the first time since high school, had fun at rehearsals, and gone on the weekend away (you’ll find me on the high ropes!!)

As Treasurer, my role is to keep the Sing! finances in balance, working with the rest of the committee, making sure that we can keep going in our rehearsal, events  and perform concerts together. Any questions about subs or about                                                                      how we spend our money catch me at                                                                                rehearsal!

         I have been a member of Sing! for about 5                 years  and it is such a fantastic family to be                 part  of. Even if I’m feeling tired on a Thursday           night, it always re-energises me and I come               home singing, bouncing and dancing!
          My role as the Refreshments Coordinator                    involves organising the tea rota with                            volunteers  from the choir every week. We                  provide home-baked cakes and copious                      amounts of tea, as well as other drinks,                      to keep everyone going during the break.                    Other than providing drinks, I try to make                    people feel as welcome as possible so if you                                                                     need to ask me any questions or just have a                                                                     chat, please come and find during the break.

I am Francesca and have been in the Choir for more than two years. It is a pleasure meeting every Thursday and trying new songs but even better to perform all together at our concerts!

I am the Media Officer of the Choir managing the website and the Facebook page so if you want to be added to our group let me know!

 

I’m Diana and I’m part of the Sing! music team. I love Sing! so much – the sense of community and the joyfulness of choir always make me feel uplifted!
Over my 4 years at Sing! I’ve gradually become more and more involved with teaching parts and conducting
songs, which has been an amazing experience for me. Being part of the music team means I get to keep
learning and I can give more back to the choir by helping to plan the music programme and                                                                      the rehearsals – hopefully giving people that                                                                      same uplifting feeling as I have!!
