Growing Singing Kendal (Monday evening)

A weeny taste of what it’s like!

I cannot recommend enough that, if you like singing and fancy doing a bit more, you try coming along on a Monday evening 7pm-8.30pm – just for the sake of a few songs and a lovely friendly connections with others. The first time you come is free in any case.

This group’s been running in Kendal since 2011 and always welcomes new voices.

Come along to a taster session for free just to see if it’s your kind of thing.

As always with my sessions there are no auditions, there’s no need to read music and there’s no performing or solos. For this group, you can just turn up and there’s no need to commit to coming to sessions regularly as you can just drop in to as many as you like.

We’ll learn short, easy, satisfying songs and work on some more challenging ones all just for the sake of the singing.

We learn songs entirely by ear (“repeat after me”!) so there’s no need to read music and all of it’s “a capella” which just means we don’t use instruments or backing tracks and sing unaccompanied in the room. Songs are from a wide variety of singing traditions and sources but all are wonderful to sing in glorious harmony.

HOW MUCH?: It costs £7 a time (or pay less. We really don’t want anyone to miss out because of money worries so if, for you, that is more than you can afford, then just pay what you can).

WHERE?: We meet at Kendal’s Town Hall right in the centre of town. Come into the Town Hall and there are signs up telling you where we are exactly as the room sometimes changes.

WHAT TIME?: Monday evenings 7pm to 8.30pm (come a wee bit earlier to get settled)
