Kendal Tuneless Choir

Kendal Tuneless Choir will launch into song on the evening of MONDAY 8TH JANUARY 2018.

Like all Tuneless Choirs, the emphasis will be on “singing like no one is listening” with everyone able to use their voices however they wish with no worries and definitely no auditions! If you’ve been told you can’t sing in tune, or know you lack the ability, practice or confidence to do so, this is the choir for you.  We’ll sing popular songs so you’re likely to know how many of them go.

The choir will be run by Ian and Tracie Penwarden-Allan. Well-known locally as musicians, teachers and conductors of Arnside Choral Society, K Shoes Male Voice Choir, OttoVoce Ladies’ Choir and The Milli Youth Choir, Tracie and Ian often meet people who won’t join a choir because they believe that they can’t sing. Ian and Tracie immediately sought to create a safe space whereby those who couldn’t sing can now sing loudly and proudly without fear of being judged!

The choir will meet at the fabulous new Rugby Club, Mintbridge, situated behind Morrisons on the Shap Road, LA9 6NY. We are using the upstairs room and there is a lift for those who find stairs a bit tricky. Usually it will run from 8pm to 9.30pm, with a break for tea/coffee and biscuits and the occasional cake. There is also a bar to help you lubricate your throat before heading home! For our launch on 8th Jan doors will open at 7.30pm for some Bucks Fizz on arrival, with hot drinks and cake at the interval, all included in the £10 ticket price.  Please do book your place at this first session so you are catered for:

Ongoing, the choir will meet every Monday evening excluding school holidays, so:

  • 8th Jan to 5th Feb
  • 19th Feb to 26th Mar
  • 9th April to 21st May
  • 4th June to 16th July

If you can’t make the launch then you can still come to future sessions – it’s a good idea to sign up for emails on the form below so  you’ll get updates and know if anything has changed.

Newcomers will continue to pay £10 for their first session, including registration with the choir.  The regular price is £7 if you “pay as you go”, or you can pay in advance for a term for the equivalent of £5 per session.

If you have any questions you can contact us by emailing or calling Tracie on 07799 660145.
