I joined jazz choir about a year ago after my Grannie came to a rehearsal and told me how great it was. I came along to see what it was like, not expecting to actually become a member! On my first rehearsal,  I instantly felt welcomed into the group as everyone was so...

I joined GJC last October and can’t believe that nearly a year has whizzed by  - and what a great year! 

I had previously sung with In Accord, a Ladies A Capella choir, for 11 years and learnt a great deal about close harmony singing. However, things had become a b...

As a family we have always sang and danced,well me and the girls!

Mainly in the kitchen, loud as you like,quite often in pj's....as I'm sure all families must.

The last time I did any type of singing was before Margaret Thatcher became Prime Minister (apart from those inappropriate out-of-tune diva impressions in the car when you're on your own - surely I'm not the only one?) but several decades later, here I am singing my h...

 I have been singing in many different choirs and entertainment groups since I was 12 (over 60 years!).

But the jazz choir is the first group of mixed voices, male and female, that I have sung with.

 

I heard the choir last summer at a WI Garden Party and wanted to join...

What an honour to be accepted by the choir and I really find it an uplifting joy to sing with you all.


I guess I am here because a door opened in my life and I stepped through it. Having been told at school I could not sing nor draw for that matter, I have spent my who...

“Join the choir” Phoebe said. “It’ll be fun” Phoebe said. 

… “Ive been a drummer for rock bands for 8 years, what'll the guys think?” I said… (to myself)

 

Turns out it wouldn't even matter what ‘the guys’ would think about it, because joining the Jazz Choir was one of...

I have always loved music & singing & had sung in choirs throughout my school years in South Africa, but haven’t done so since then. Joining a choir had been on my New Year’s resolutions list for a number of years, but I just never got around to it (same as most New Ye...
