People are often daunted at the thought of singing in public. Plus, especially when you’re a beginner, it’s often hard to concentrate on playing your ukulele – remembering where the chords are, getting the strumming right & keeping time – in addition to singing the words of the song!
They are holding a Chorus Festival this Bank Holiday weekend at the Southbank Centre. In addition to the formal paying performances & workshops, there are a number of free Voicelab events where you can just turn up & join in some vocal warm-ups or singalongs as part of a large group of people. It looks like an excellent chance to get some coaching & tips as part of a big ad-hoc choir & a fun way to build your confidence in singing!
Each day there are warm-up sessions & rehearsals, followed by a choir performance later on (which you can also just turn up at – in several cases the music & words are already on-line). Have a look round the website for more info. If you attend, let us know how you get on.
