Introducing Growing Singing

Do you like the idea of singing but just not often do it?  Or perhaps you already do a lot of it but would like to try a different approach. There’s no excuse not to sing (or sing more) if you’d like to, there are so many opportunities locally.

We’re Clare Elleray Mee and Rachael Wadey and we think singing (if you like singing of course!) is good for you – physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, spiritually and musically.  We believe it’s really beneficial just to have a blooming good sing. There are a lot of excellent opportunities in Kendal, nearby and all over the UK and, if you’re tempted by one, we recommend you just give it a go.

Click on the video on this page to see us in action with The Growing Singers.

We run a few of these singing opportunities and all you need to bring is your willingness to sing. There’s no need to read music and we learn glorious harmony songs from around the world in a huge variety of styles with a friendly bunch of others. 

Groups to choose from:

Growing Singing includes three drop in singing groups 

Mid-morning Chorus (Monday) 10.30am to 12 noon (starting 25th September 2023)

Twilight Chorus (Monday) 7.00pm to 8.30pm

Dawn Chorus (Tuesday) 9.30am to 11.00am

There is also a committed weekly community choir called The Growing Singers on Tuesday evening 7.00pm to 9.00pm. 

On the Other Opportunities page there is also a long list of local, regular singing opportunities of any description.

Singers from Kendal took part in Sing for Water North West
A big group of us from Kendal and around added our voices to the 500 or so at Sing for Water North 2015. What an occasion!


The above are regular groups but we also run or get involved in some occasional One-off Events where, for instance, we encourage another workshop leader to come and run a singing day that locals to Kendal can access. We’ve also taken part in Sing for Water North in some years. That was run as a virtual choir in that strange 2020 year and you can see the lovely Moon River video that resulted here.

Look around the website to find all sorts of local singing opportunities on offer. Look especially at the Other Opportunities page if you’re looking for other singing groups and choirs locally. There are LOADS!

Here are The Growing Singers performing for the seventh time this year at Kendal Town Hall just before Christmas…
