Come and sing! Humans have done it together since they were on this planet, bonding communities tight. Whether you consider yourself a singer or not doesn't matter; you're welcome and encouraged to come along and there’s no audition. We’ll perform on Saturday evening, leading the rest of the summerhouse in song. You don't need to be able to read music (though sheet music will be available should you want) as all the parts will be taught by ear. You only need to come to one rehearsal, but the more people who come to both, the better the choir will sound. Guaranteed to release endorphins and create a shared, happy buzz.
Duration: 90 mins
