Christmasfest:  Auld Lang Syne (with Mother’s Jam)

We have two aims: to make a nice sound, and have fun.  Both are equally important!

Marlborough’s mayor, Edwina Fogg, has awarded the crawl4choir a prestigious Waits Badge for recognition of our services to community music.  Waits Badges have been  traditionally given to bands of minstrels who entertained at court since the time of Elizabeth I.

The Members’ Page has all the sound and word files and is password-protected.  You’ll receive the password when you sign up for the term.  I’ll also provide a practice CD.

The Marlborough Community Choir is open to everyone, of any age, and any musical experience (including none at all).  We will have a very eclectic repertoire, spanning folk, world music, pop, reggae, and Motown.  The only music not included is what might be considered serious classical or sacred.

There are no auditions, and no music to read as everything is taught by ear.  I am a trained Natural Voice Practitioner and hold to its principles of inclusiveness.  Click here for more information about the NVPN.  We are not a performance choir as such, although there will be opportunities to perform for those who want to.  The emphasis is on singing for fun!

We meet Wednesday evenings during term time 7:30-9:30pm at St Peter’s church on Marlborough High St (the one with the craft market).  There is free parking in the High St after 6:30.

So come along and check it out, you can try the first session with no commitment.  The Principles and Philosophies document attached here summarises the things that you need to know.
