On Tuesday 8 September the choir will resume meeting under our leader Janet Wood.  For the time being meetings will be on Zoom only, but we will still have a good sing and give the brain cells some much needed exercise.  If you would like to join us, send a message via the contact page on this website or email singing@retfordcommunitysingers.org.uk and we will provide you with the access link.

The government guidance on meetings of choirs and other groups has changed and it may soon be possible to resume face to face rehearsals in a covid secure manner.  We are curreently considering how and when this can be done.

During lockdown we produced a Youtube video of the Choir singing virtually as a record of what everyone was going through. Click link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWGQp1D6HLc

Singing is fun, sociable and good for your health. If you are looking for something different to do, why not give us a try.  Having a good sing on a Tuesday evening could be just what you need. We are a big friendly group and we make a great noise together, but we don't have the pressure of preparing for performances which you will find in other choir.

WHO ARE WE?

We are a lively choir for men and women of all ages who want to sing for pleasure. The choir was formed in September 2012 with the aim of providing opportunities for anyone from the local community to sing, regardless of musical experience, age or background and to meet other singers in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

We sing, unaccompanied and in harmony, a wide variety of songs drawn from folk, pop, gospel and world music - in fact anything with a good harmony.  Learning is by listening and repetition using Natural Voice methods www.naturalvoice.net

There is no need to read music and no musical knowledge is required, though if you have some, that’s great. The result is a rich, enthusiastic sound but the emphasis is very much on singing for enjoyment rather than for polished performance.

Look for us on Face Book.
