More about our choirs

What do we do?

These choirs for everyone who loves to sing. No previous experience is necessary and no need to read music. A really friendly inclusive group. 
We will do fun warm ups and exercises to improve your singing skills but the emphasis is always on having a fun stress busting evening full of laughter and song.

Unique Vocal Arrangements

Amanda has a wealth of experience with mixed ability choirs and creates arrangements that sound amazing but are accessible for beginners and also challenging enough for the more experienced singer. We sing pop, rock, show tunes, sea shanties and anything that makes us smile and lifts our hearts

Live Keyboard Accompaniment

We are very fortunate to have the very talented Des Frater on keys. He arranges all our bespoke musical accompaniment 
to compliment Amanda's vocal arrangements.
