Solent Tuneless Choir
Following government advice we are delighted to announce that we are ready to start now singing together in person – adhering to guidelines for our personal safety and that of others.
Solent Tuneless Choir launched on Tuesday 9th May 2017, at the hall at Holy Rood Church Centre, Gosport Road, Stubbington, Fareham, PO14 2AS. New members are welcome to come along at any stage. Choir sessions are held weekly every Tuesday from 7.30pm until 9pm.
Like all Tuneless Choirs, the aim will be to allow people to enjoy group singing without the need to worry what they sound like. We “sing like no one is listening” – it’s incredibly liberating, especially if you’ve ever been told to stop singing. Join in wholeheartedly and your endorphins will start flowing. These are the brain’s feel-good chemicals – the name is short for “endogenous morphine” – and the reason why singing with others has been shown to increase life satisfaction.
Solent have a new choir Leader/Manager. Her name is Sharon Marnell and she is also the leader of Locks Heath Tuneless Choir. A former career as entertainer at sea, Sharon is a world traveller who now teaches piano and ukulele, and believes passionately that singing should be enjoyed by everyone.
Newcomers pay £10 for their first session, including registration with the choir. The regular price is £8 if you attend the choir on an ad-hoc basis, as some people choose to do. You can pay in advance for a term for the equivalent of £6 per session. Refreshments are included each time.
Contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling Sharon on 07434 578 235.
If you can’t make it along in the near future, then subscribing to our mailing list will keep you up to date with when we’re holding sessions.
