There’s a lot of things to love about learning to sing in a choir. Of course, there’s the sense of community. Obviously, you learn to sing, and sure, you get time with a teacher who can offer constant feedback and support but one thing we don’t talk about enough is the setting of goals.
Goals are super important when learning any new talent. It’s a clear way of measuring progress but what do you consider a goal? For some, it’s nailing a certain song but for a lot of people, it’s performing live. Most of us who want to sing want to share that gift with others, but it’s probably a bit too much to travel around singing at individual people.
Fortunately, there is another way. As part of the yearly cycle of Bigmouth Chorus and en Choir, we get the opportunity to show off what we’ve learned at an annual concert. It’s a massive deal, a full-house of friends, family and public eager to hear the well-honed instrument the choir has become.
This year, Bigmouth Chorus and en Choir take the stage at a pair of gigs, offering mutual support to each other, with a catalogue of songs including Guns ‘N’ Roses, The Bangles, U2, Queen and Simon & Garfunkel.
Catch Bigmouth, with en Choir, on Friday 19th June at Queens Road Baptist Church in Broadstairs.
Then make your way to Whitstable on Saturday 20th June, St Alphege Church (opposite Whitstable Playhouse) for en Choir, with Bigmouth.
Tickets are £8/£6 with children under 12 admitted free! Tickets are available in advance from We Got Tickets, from Three Graces gift shop (The Broadway, Broadstairs) and on the door, subject to availability.
