The choir starts back in the new year on Jan 9th up until Easter week. We'll start with Nick Jones, then Peter Gwynne and Iona Sawtell.
Heartsong Choir meets every Tuesday evening, usually in the Round Studio at the Arts Centre, Aberystwyth. Arrival from 7.00 for a 7.15 start. See Calendar for the programme of dates and tutors.
The choir is open to anyone with an interest in singing regardless of musical knowledge or previous experience. You do not need to read music and there are no auditions! (see Style and Approach).
The main aim of the choir is to enjoy singing together. Singing is fun and good for your health and wellbeing. Even if you have never sung before or it’s been a long time since you sang in a choir, we are a friendly group and new singers will be welcomed into the choir.
We are an acapella choir and our tutors teach songs from different genres and styles – folk, gospel, pop, African, Georgian, as well as traditional and contemporary songs from these shores. Songs are usually taught in three or four-part harmonies and you will have a chance to discover where your own voice feels most comfortable.
We sing for the pure enjoyment of singing together in harmony. Heartsong is not a performing choir, but we do take part in events throughout the year. For example, ‘Sing for Water’, carols at Christmas and other charity fund raising events.
If you would like further information or would like to come along and sing with us, please contact us.
We are very grateful to Aberystwyth Arts Centre for the use of a room for weekly rehearsals and for continued support.
