Alive and Singing
Rehearsing the beautiful Haydn canon "Though my Soul may Set in Darkness" (words by Sarah Williams)
Alive and Singing is an up-beat and all-inclusive choir which meets weekly to sing for pleasure. The joy of making quality music together is guaranteed to fill all participants with a sense of achievement, ensuring that everyone departs on a high! Everyone is welcome, whether you're a seasoned singer or completely new to it. We don't expect you to be able to read music (but great if you can), and sessions will be run on a drop-in basis.
We follow the principles of the Natural Voice Network, The Philosophy and Working Principles of the Natural Voice Network encompass the idea that natural voice practitioners believe that singing is our birthright. For thousands of years 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 has been a part of life, a way of binding the community together. We aim to recreate the sense that vocalising, 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 directed by dynamic community singing leaders Eliza Wylie and Emma Wheat, founders of Somerset Arts Well. Sessions are held on Wednesday mornings from 10-11 at the Seager Hall, Wells.
