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. From September 2020, we are introducing three groups – ‘Little Lyrics‘ for 5-8 year olds, ‘Vocalise‘ for 8-11 year olds and ‘Harmonise‘ for 11+.
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.
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.
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.
For all groups, the aims are to help children understand a little about music, make a great sound and most of all, HAVE FUN.
It must be noted that, on our return to choir in September, we will be following all Government guidelines to keep the children as safe as possible during the ongoing pandemic and will be working in smaller groups of no more than 15 children. Detailed information will be sent to parents before term begins. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any further questions or queries.
