Choirs are a fantastic way for everyone to share and enjoy music and singing. Cheltenham Children’s Choir is aimed at all children who love to sing. The Children’s Choir meets in three groups – ‘Little Lyrics‘ for 5-8 year olds, ‘Vocalise‘ for 8-11 year olds and ‘Harmonise‘ for 11+.
From January 2021, we will be continuing with Zoom Choir! Although we know this is our second choice (the moment we sing together in person will be magical), we have had so much fun at Zoom Choir, singing safely in 2020. For a short while, we intend to continue the virtual fun into 2021!
Little Lyrics is for children aged 5-8. We play singing games, learn some simple vocal warm ups and learn a variety of music, always including a fun, upbeat number that the children will know well (i.e. songs from Matilda, Moana or Mamma Mia!). Little Lyrics runs from 9:00am – 9:45am every Saturday morning in term time and is held at Emmanuel Church Hall, Leckhampton, currently on Zoom.
Vocalise invites all children aged 8-11 to come along and sing a range of songs, from the children’s favourites to some well-known classics! This is a friendly, musical atmosphere where we also explore a little more about rhythm and harmony too – all with a musical game or two of course. Vocalise runs at Emmanuel Church Hall, 10am – 10:45am on a Saturday, currently on Zoom.
Harmonise is a group of young people aged 11+ who enjoy singing together in harmony. The group have an input into our varied repertoire and the focus is on enjoying learning new musical skills whilst having fun! We would welcome new members to this group – if you know a young person interested in meeting new people and singing together, come along! Harmonise runs from 11am – 12 midday at Emmanuel Church Hall every Saturday morning in term time, currently on Zoom.
For all groups, the aims are to help children understand a little about music, make a great sound and most of all, HAVE FUN.
Detailed information will be sent to parents before term begins. This term, we are opening our ‘virtual doors’ and welcoming new members!
