Sutton Coldfield Tuneless Choir
After a successful summer singing badly outdoors, we plan to return to indoor singing for the autumn term – still badly of course!
We are hugely excited about this and plan to operate how we did pre-pandemic, singing weekly during school term time on a Tuesday evening from 7.30 – 9.00pm at the Sutton Coldfield United Reformed Church on Brassington Avenue in the town centre (B73 6AA). Our Autumn term runs from 7th September to 14th December – do please do sign up to our regular mailings at the foot of this page so you can keep up to date with all our news and receive full details of our return to singing indoors.
At Tuneless Choir, there’s no pressure to hit the right note or get it right, no judgement, no need to improve – just confidence-boosting fun and plenty of laughs if we get it wrong, it’s very liberating! It gives us lots of smiles, laughs, community and a feeling of ‘upliftedness’ – essential ingredients as we emerge from a pandemic and see a return to normality. We enjoy an extensive mix of popular songs from Abba and the Beatles to Coldplay and Elbow – and just about everything in between so always something for everyone!
“Having been told all my life that I can’t sing I now have the confidence to sing my heart out. I still can’t sing but I really don’t care I have such fun trying!” Jenny Clarke
Sutton Coldfield Tuneless Choir launched in May 2016, and in normal times regularly had over 100 attendees, and attracted 40 or so at our outdoor sessions. As far as we are aware, there will be no restriction on numbers on our return but we will continue to exercise social distancing practices, hand sanitising, track & trace etc to ensure we do our best to keep everyone as safe as possible.
Your first session costs £10 which includes your choir session, a personalised songbook and registration. Future visits will be £8, payable by bank transfer (preferable) or cash on the door.
Subject to any restriction on numbers, sessions may need to be pre-booked but when we have fully returned to normal times, there will be no need to pre-book, you can just rock up at the church and sing your heart out as often, or as little as you want without the need to attend every week or making a term commitment so any time you feel like a good sing just come and join us! If you love it and want to come regularly, we offer a discounted term payment at the beginning of each half term, subject to being able to operate as we did pre-Covid.
