Join ON QUAY: our own community a capella choir
We are a small group of people who enjoy singing together – you might have seen us at the comedy night singing our Carpark Song. Our leader is Jessica McGowan, who has years of musical experience, loves singing, and brings enthusiasm and fun to the group.
What do we sing? Easy songs like rounds, call and response, and more challenging 3-part harmonies. Our material crosses several genres from world music, gospel, folk, classical… the main criteria is that the songs are enjoyable to sing. We sing a capella mostly (i.e. unaccompanied). It’s about the joy that comes from blending our voices…. And it’s about having fun.
A choir needs some ‘great’ singers, yes. But it also needs some people who aren’t going to feature or do big impressive solos – it needs some singers to stay in the background and just add bulk to the sound. You don’t have to have a big powerful voice, as long as you’re (mostly) in tune!
We meet Sunday afternoons from 2.15 pm-4.30 pm at the Community Hall
Please call or text Jess (details below) to confirm the choir’s activities in light of the current Covid restrictions.
We always have a break for tea and cake.
