CORONA UPDATE. We are keeping the choir going, and keeping each others spirits up using zoom. New members welcome to join us, as we have fun all singing together despite the lag – inventing a whole new version of rhythm!
here’s how to set up zoom for singing, and remember to use headphones if possible
I have been a choir leader for a number of community choirs, including the National Theatre choir.
Sing Eazy is my own choir. We meet on wednesdays 12- 1pm, 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: Lots of Neil Young, some clasic Elton, Bruce Springsteen, Thomas Tallis, Joan as Policewoman, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen and by Earth Wind and Fire, plus we gathered a mob of friends and performed the choral version of my christmas single.
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 finding a 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, but am all better now (only kidding).
