WE ARE VOCALESE
Singing is good for you!
Hello. I'm Richard. I live in Bracknell and have run choirs, orchestras and bands for more than 30 years. Music is my life and as people who knows me will tell you, I love to share my passion for music with anyone who'll listen.
CORONAVIRUS INSERT: Whilst the country is in lockdown, we are pandering to our singing addictions online. These sessions are very different to a regular "in person" choir meeting, but lend us different opportunities. Learning is done as a group, still, but we aren't able to all sing and hear each other because of the delays inherent in online meeting. We are, however, still learning new repertoire and making recordings and videos... something we wouldn't normally have done! If you'd like to see what we have been up to, have a look at our YouTube playlist...
Whilst we're not able to perform in public, these videos have allowed us to continue to share what we can achieve as a choir with friends and family across the globe.
Now, back to my original message, intended for virus-restriction-free singing!
Vocalese is a fun community choir open to anyone aged 16 and over, and we're all about singing. Singing for fun, singing for your health, both physical and emotional, singing to feel good and stay young! On top of that, we sound awesome! I can't easily categorise the music we sing as our stylistic range is pretty wide, Pop and rock, beautiful ballads, showtunes, barbershop, folk, light classical... the best thing is to come along and see what we've got going on!
There is at least one concert performance opportunity each term and we do take part in other events in and around the area. We even went to Germany to sing at Christmas markets over there.
We've raised a bunch of money for charity too!
If you've got any questions, drop us an email or give us a call 07967 768320 (that's Melissa, my wife's phone).
There are no auditions, no solos and although you'll be given sheet music, the ability to read it is completely unimportant. Rather than blether on here, pop along and see what we're about. No need to let us know in advance.
Directions and times are HERE.
