I have been a choir leader for a number of community choirs, and also recently took on the National Theatre choir.
Sing Eazy is my own choir. We meet on wednesday lunchtimes, 12 45 to 2, at my studio opposite Peckham Rye Park. We pride ourselves on being very bold in our choice of material; most of what we want to sing can’t be found in choral arrangement books, so they are mostly my own arrangements – but sometimes we like to dive into a song we fancy on the day and make up our parts there and then. We did this recently with So Long Marianne and the Times they are a changing. In the last few month we have sung: If ye love me, by Thomas Tallis, The Ride by Joan as Policewoman, Ziggy Stardust by David Bowie and Let’s Groove by Earth Wind and Fire, plus we gathered a mob of friends and performed the choral version of my christmas single in December.
The choir is non audition, and the emphasis is on having fun whilst developing a sense of how the language of music actually works, as related to singing. It’s also about how to finding way into music as a ‘non musician’. I honestly don’t think anyone who has come along, hasn’t improved as a singer and a musician.
I was the choir leader for Goose Green Community choir for a number of years, and recently handed over to my talented friend Ben Davies. Here is a link to those lovely folks.
