SING OUT SATURDAYS   - By Chris Rowbury

The first ever Sing Out Saturday in Copdock in January attracted over 40 keen singers! Let's get the whole of Copdock singing.

 

Throughout 2016, choirmaster Chris Rowbury invites anyone who loves to sing to join him at his monthly Sing Out Saturdays. These fun and friendly singing sessions are open to all: men and women, experienced singers and complete beginners alike. No musical experience is necessary, there are no auditions or solos and Chris will soon have you singing in beautiful harmony even if you think you can't 'sing'.

 

Join Chris at his morning sessions in Copdock Village Hall every third Saturday of the month. Every session is self-contained with brand new songs each month, so you can come as little or often as you like.

 

The sessions start at 10.30am, run for 2 1/2 hours and cost £8 each.

There is no need to book, just turn up on the day. Refreshments will be available.
