 Welcoming, easy-going and most importantly FUN!     

 

Singing for Fun welcomes anyone who fancies having a go at singing.   Some of our 300 members are seasoned singers and others are complete novices with no musical or singing experience at all.   Many of the members have been with the group since it was founded by Anne Hughes in 2008.

What we do

Who we are

Singing in a choir not only benefits mental and physical health but is enormous fun. 

 

Our repertoire is varied so there is something for everyone.  As well as songs we learn exercises and techniques to help with breathing and vocal range.  We often use sheet music but you don't need to be able to read music to take part as rehearsal track

Concerts are held at Christmas and throughout the Summer term when the choirs entertain audiences in Leicestershire and beyond, raising thousands of pounds for local charities.


Membership is renewed termly so there’s always the flexibility to dip in and out throughout the year and, if you can’t make your timetabled session, you can drop into any of the other groups.
