Songbirds is an all-female choir which has been singing and performing for ten years. During that time there have been a few alterations in line-up and three changes of Musical Director, although several of the founder members are still Songbirds. Currently we have around 35 members across three sections - altos and second and first sopranos.
We love to sing and try to improve all the time. We work towards performances once or twice a year to raise money for our chosen local charity. These performances are often held in the summertime and at Christmas.
At the moment Songbirds rehearsals have been suspended because of the nation-wide restrictions in place to deal with Coronavirus.
We look forward to choir recommencing as soon as the situation allows!
In the meantime, find out what we’re doing to keep in touch..................
May 2020 update:
Crocheted Blanket to be Auctioned:
While Songbirds Choir is currently in lockdown, it’s members are doing all sorts of things to keep in touch and to reach out to each other at this singular time!
Some of us are making bunting in readiness for a celebration when our choir can, once more, come together. The blanket pictured here has been crocheted by Wendy, a member of Songbirds Committee, and will be auctioned, later in the year, to raise money for charity.
The blanket is 36” (91cm) x 48” (122cm) and I think you would agree it’s a beautiful piece of work that any of us would be thrilled to have in our home!
October 2020 update:
Songbirds continues not meet up as a choir currently but it’s members are successfully keeping in touch during the months of lockdown and restrictions created by Covid-19. Each of the three singing sections is regularly in contact through WhatsApp messaging and there are endless jokes and cartoons passing backwards and forwards as well of plenty of messages of support. Zoom has also given section groups the opportunity for regular catch ups and virtual get togethers and quite a lot of laughs too! During the summer months groups also met up for coffee and cake in the outdoors. In addition there have been regular (monthly) Newsletters sent out to all members keeping everyone up to date and linked in with news from individual choir members and National updates on Covid regulations and the impact on choirs like ours. Most recently ‘Zoom-alongs’ have been established which enable all choir members to see one another and sing songs ‘with’ each other - almost like being in a choir except that you can’t hear each other!
