For weeks now, people locally have been receiving e-mails and posts on social media about the mysterious ‘Project RMS’ simply saying that the project would be starting soon. Now Swindon’s Wessex Male Choir have revealed ‘RMS’ stands for ‘Real Men Sing.’
Project RMS is offering men the chance to take part in a series of fun events ranging from joining in a flash-mob, singing at a military base complete with military hardware as a backdrop, to singing on the pitch at Wembley in front of 80,000 fans, and performing a few numbers with the choir in a concert.
With an increasing number of studies telling of the health benefits of singing, the project offers men a chance to get more out of life, and also promises fun and friendship whilst at the same time chalking-up some truly memorable experiences.
Choir chairman Guy Edwards, pictured, said: “This is an amazing opportunity for men to experience at first-hand what it’s like to sing with a top amateur choir. So many of our singers wished they had got into singing sooner, so we really hope that men will want to find out what all the fuss is about.”
The Project will run until Christmas with the first event being a free singing ‘taster’ workshop and open rehearsal on Tuesday 27 September, 7.30pm, at the Church of Christ the Servant, Elstree Way, Abbey Meads in North Swindon. Even for those who are lucky enough to get places on Project RMS, there is no obligation to join the choir full time.
