Further information:

This friendly and enthusiastic community choir has been singing together in Cleobury Mortimer, Shropshire since February 2013.

Since March 2020 we have been meeting online instead of in person and welcome anyone who would like to join us.  Although we sadly can’t hear each other during sessions, Kate has devised ways for harmony singing to be enjoyed.  We sing songs from around the world in a variety of languages – stimulation for brain and tongue!   Sing Laugh Breathe Community choir is open to anyone who would like to sing – even if you think you can’t.  As your microphone will be turned off while we sing no-one else will hear you (except anyone in hearing distance of where you are).

Sessions include some gentle physical and vocal warm ups and also begin and end with a chat.

We sing together weekly on Wednesday mornings 11 am – 12.00 pm.

Although we started out as a singing for fun choir the invitation to take part in the Big Sing in Ludlow gave members a taste for performing!  As a result we put on our 1st concert in December 2016 to raise funds for the Ludlow and Kidderminster singing for lung health groups.  Several other concerts and further participations in the Ludlow Big Sing have followed.  In 2018 we ventured to Wolverhampton to take part in the Howling Wolves Community Choir Festival.

All songs taught by ear so ability to read music is not necessary. No auditions – just come along and give it a go.

There is normally a fee of £6, or £30 per 6 week term paid in advance, but for these online sessions I feel it’s important for singing to be available to all who wish to participate so no fee is charged.  However if you wish to show your appreciation this will be gratefully received (as I too have lost income from being unable to run choirs as usual).
