Alive and Singing is a friendly and inclusive daytime singing group which meets weekly to sing for pleasure. We sing a diverse mix of rounds, canons and songs in two and three parts. All voices are welcome, whether you're a seasoned singer or completely new to it. We learn all our songs by ear and always include some improvisation and movement in our sessions.

What our members say....

"Such an opportunity for harmony....both vocal and social, with no pressure to perform." (Melanie)

"Joyful, inclusive and wonderfully uplifting" (Inga)

'"Just knowing [that] you don't have to be a talented singer to join in. As long as you enjoy the sessions, with a lovely group of people I might add, it's fine." (Annie)

"...it's uplifting n joyful. The music experience u bring is rich n extensive. The informality u encourage is inclusive n welcoming n I feel very privileged to enjoy ur gift." (Vicky)

"...a great place to meet people and to learn new songs."(Donna)

Alive and Singing is directed by dynamic community music leaders Eliza Wylie and Joanne Coomber, Directors of Somerset Arts Well with occasional appearances from Emma Wheat.

We are members of the Natural Voice Network, whose Philosophy and Working Principles follow the idea that singing is our birthright.  Since the beginning of time all over the world people have sung – to express joy, celebration and grief, to accompany work and devotion, to aid healing – without worrying about having a “good” voice or “getting it right”. Song is a part of life, a way of binding the community together. Vocal play, singing and singing together are natural and open to all. 

For more information about the Natural Voice Network see www.naturalvoice.net.

Alive and Singing is supported by a grant from the Mendip Communities fund and the Somerset Community Foundation.
