34 Days to Go!

No, not until Christmas Day! There’s 34 days until the most festive party of them all! That’s right, we are in full preparation for our Friends and Family Charity Concert in aid of Oasis UK Domestic Abuse Service on 12th December. We like to raise the Christmas spirit with a few festive classics such as ‘Fairytale of New York‘ and ‘Carol of the Bells‘ plus much more at the same time as raising money for a great cause. Sound good? Come down for a free trial rehearsal on Tuesday evenings at 7:30 or contact us with any queries; all we ask is enthusiasm and there are strictly no auditions!

The Boys (and Girls) Are Back in Town!

We’re back! With well rested throats and clear albeit chilly lungs, we roared back last night with an awesome rehearsal! This term will not only be a continuation of the fun and varying difficulty songs that we talked to you about in previous entries, but also it is the run up to our Christmas party so we will be learning and rehearsing some more festive tunes! If you’d like to give BIGMOUTH Chorus a try then feel free to pop along to a free trial rehearsal or contact us with any queries.

We haven’t vanished!

Last night was our last rehearsal for a little while as we take a break over school half term; and it was a rather brilliant one, even if we do say so ourselves. But never fear! We will be back in force, singing our lungs out in just two short weeks. If you’d like to give BIGMOUTH Chorus a go then please feel free to attend a free trial rehearsal…just not on Tuesday 24th October! We’ll be back on Tuesday 31st October so come on down or contact us with any enquiries.

Dreamland Charity Event

We are really excited to announce that on 12th December we will be hosting a family and friends charity event at Dreamland, Margate! This fundraiser will be in aid of Oasis UK, a charity committed to aiding and improving the lives of those affected by domestic abuse. If you’d like to be part of the choir behind this event, feel free to pop down for a free trial rehearsal or contact us with any queries!

Picture Perfect!

Have you heard? The official photos from the concert we featured in this year are now available for viewing! The awesome photographer, Ren Smith, did a marvellous job of capturing both the final rehearsal and the concert. So if you’d like to see a bit of what we do then please feel free to have a browse! If you’d like to come to a free trial session then you’re welcome to attend on a Tuesday evening at 7:30pm or contact us with any queries.

New year, new faces!

We are back in strength as we start our new year of rehearsals! We’ve already started cracking on two songs with, ‘True Colours’, ‘Hit the Road, Jack’ and ‘Only You’. Everyone seems really excited to be back and we are over the moon to tell you we’ve had lots of new and returning faces coming through the door! Would you like to give en Choir a try? Come on down to a free trial rehearsal or contact us with any queries.

The Choir Have Spoken!

At the end of last term we decided that choir members would choose every song we are singing this year and next by popular vote. After making a very long list of songs, the results are in! So far some of the highlights have been ‘California Dreamin‘ (The Mamas and The Papas) and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody‘ (Queen) with over 20 votes each! The choir have decided to bring back some of last year’s songs that they enjoyed too much to say goodbye to such as ‘Hallelujah‘ (Leonard Cohen) and ‘The Lamb‘ (John Tavener); but we have also branched out to some new songs featuring artists such as ABBA, Sting and The Bangles. Fancy singing any of these great hits and many more? Come down for a free trial rehearsal on a Tuesday night at 7:30pm at the Walpole Bay Hotel in Margate. If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We’re so excited, and we just can’t hide it!

Our final rehearsal of the year was last night and it went with a blast! The choir sounded incredible and we’re set to go to Whitstable this Saturday to feature in en Choir’s annual summer concert along with the brilliant house band with Matt Hodge on percussion and Akos Hasznos on bass. Doors open at 19:00 this Saturday, 22 July and we hope to see you all there!
