I run three choirs in and around the Lincoln area:
- Vocal Authority – Thursday evenings, 5:30pm for a 6pm start. Bishop Grosseteste University Chapel, Newport, Lincoln. LN1 3DY. (Subs £5 per week) (now to include the Lincolnshire Cooperative Choir)
- Treble Cliff – Tuesday afternoons, 2pm. Club Room, ‘The Venue’, Grantham Road, Navenby. LN5 0JJ. (Subs £5 per week)
- S.C.O.N.E. (Steampunk Choir of Notorious Excellence) – Monday evenings, 7pm. The Victoria Pub Function Room, 6 Union Road, Lincoln, LN1 3BJ. Interest in Steampunk will avoid confusion! Repertoire mostly parodies and Victorian Music Hall… (Subs via donation)
Subs cover all sheet music, lyrics, tuition, practice CDs, room hire and any refreshments provided.
We sing a great variety of songs – from rock and pop through to slow ballads and folk tunes (check out the sound/video downloads page for an idea of the sort of thing that we do). In the academic year 2016-2017 we have raised over £1000 for charity (Teenage Cancer Trust and the Multiple Sclerosis Society), and sung at Lincoln Cathedral, in a huge BBC production at Lincoln Castle as well as lots of smaller venues and events. We are happy for members to sing out at events, or to keep their singing with our weekly sessions – whatever makes them most comfortable.
We pride ourselves on being welcoming and friendly, and we particularly specialise in those who have been told they “can’t sing”! There are no auditions, and no-one sings solo. We all raise our voices together and make a truly joyous noise…
I also run a Wednesday evening Ukulele beginners’/improvers’ class. We are currently in Bishop Grosseteste University (Teaching Rm 2, Hardy Building) at 6pm. However, I hope to be rehoming this further south in the next few weeks. Watch this space for a new venue soon!
Come and join us!!!
