The 'Social Singing Choir'
It's been proven that group singing makes us happier, healthier, smarter and more creative. Every time you sing, you fire up the right temporal lobe of your brain, and release endorphins including oxytocin which result in heightened states pleasure, bliss bonding and love. With this in mind it felt right to start a choir in Margate. The Social Singing Choir!
The S.S.C is not your average choir and our aim is simple. To create a choir within the Margate community that sings great music with a relaxed and fun approach.
I want it to be completely different to the stuffy choirs I sang in growing up. With a strong sense of community and lots of social events. People of all levels and experience are welcome! The choir will meet on Tuesday evenings starting in February with the opening of the Printworks space. We are already planning events and collaborations with POW and other local organisations. My aim is to use all my touring, writing and professional coaching experience to give vocal guidance to all the choir's members whilst focusing on creating an friendly atmosphere that doesn't take itself too seriously.
As we build up to the first rehearsal I'll be collating song ideas from all those signed up to the choir newsletter. If you'd like to suggest a song or find out more about the choir sign up today!
