Online choir is a great fun alternative to traditional choir and a panacea for your mood and soul. Don’t think about it… just do it.

We look forward to embarking on our fifth term online. As Summer approaches we welcome some easing of the restrictions we’ve endured over the year and experiencing some freedom returning to our lives! As singers we face a more prolonged restriction and so we have braved, and since embraced, the new and only way for choirs. Along the way, we have discovered many silver linings to working in this way.

The choir has welcomed singers from the length and breadth of the UK, from Shetland to Sussex, and from overseas from New York to Lisbon. The choir is over 100 strong equalling numbers attending live, before lockdown.

We have also recorded three songs (the first with the choir, then with special guests Karine Polwart and Mark Bonnar) and in doing so we’ve felt massively heartened to hear ourselves sing together. In spite of our continuing distance from each other we have created a place to be together, to stay connected, and to sing! We aim to release the songs as an EP (or maybe even album!?).

Over the course of eight weeks, we will enjoy playing with some fun songs, warm-ups, having a laugh and making a record!

This term puts the choir firmly back in the lead spot.
