The Swindon Scratch Choir, which is celebrating ten years, is open to new members in September.
Organiser Linda Lee said, “Swindon Scratch Choir is a lively, friendly, community choir singing mainly for fun, but also doing the occasional performance. There are no auditions and you don’t have to read music. Songs range from cheerful pop, joyful African to sombre Russian.
“Singing gives people great benefits; it can improve health and increase a sense of well-being. Swindon Scratch Choir has seen many people transformed by the joy of singing – someone recently said, ‘I came in with a headache and am leaving walking on air.’ We’ve seen confidence grow, friendships and a sense of community and belonging develop where there was none.”
All ages and levels of singing experience are welcome – beginners and the nervous especially so. Just turn up on the night. Autumn term weekly sessions begin on Monday 26 September at the Pilgrim Centre, Regent Street from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.
The cost is £6 a session (£5 conc.), which includes refreshments.
