FAQs!

• What will we sing? An eclectic repertoire of songs from across the globe in many moods and genres, taught by ear.

• I am Bisexual / Transgender / Non-Binary / something not named here – am I as welcome as Lesbian and Gay people? Yes. GLOW choir celebrates people of all sexuality and gender identities, without judgement or hierarchy.

• I am Straight / Heterosexual – am I welcome? Yes. If you support people loving who they love, and being who they are, and you want to sing, then you are welcome.

• Is it really an LGBTQ+ space if straight allies are welcome? Yes. There will be no policing of sexuality or gender identities. By showing up to GLOW, people are either naming themselves as LGBTQ+ or as supportive of LGBTQ+ people.

• I’m not confident in my singing / think I can’t sing – am I welcome? Yes. All voices are welcome at GLOW choir. If you lack confidence, or have issues with technical aspects such as pitching, rhythm, melody recall, tone etc, you can contact Hannah-Rose for individual coaching. Hannah-Rose teaches one to one singing lessons on Fridays and Sundays at Hobgoblin Music Shop, Queens Road, Brighton, during shop hours.

• I can’t come every time – is that okay? Yes, drop in as often as suits you, and receive a warm welcome when you do. NB, the final session of the term serves as a rehearsal for the end of term shindig, rather than a drop-in workshop session

• Money is tight but I want to join in – what discounts are available? Drop in discounted rate for those who need it is £7 instead of £10 / £9. If you buy the whole term up front you have three sessions free. There are two free crew places available each week. If payment still prevents you from joining, contact the leader about  arrangements.

• What disabled access is there? There is a wheelchair ramp providing front door access and a disabled access toilet near the front door. If you need to, you are welcome to pace yourself during sessions, sit or stand, & take extra breaks. There is always a break roughly half way through, for which some refreshments are provided.

• What about parking and public transport? There is pay and display parking nearby. We are located in the Seven Dials area, near to Brighton train station and local bus stops.

I hope to see you there! Contact hannahrose@naturalvoice.net to ask any Qs not answered above.
