SINGWELL SOFA CHOIR has now finished until after the summer. Thank you for all of your support and encouragement. Have a wonderful summer everyone and we will see hopefully see you either on the screen or in real life after the summer break.
Brand New Sofa Choir!
Because we are missing our weekly singing communities we are going to embark on a 'Singwell from Your Sofa' choir. There is no easy way to replicate our usual rehearsals (because of sound delay online) so we will do the very best we can using Facebook Live. Julia will teach some new songs along with some of our familiar ones in three parts.
When? Mondays and Thursdays 10-10.40am
Where? Your own sofa via Facebook Live!
How much? It's up to you - just a small donation will be fine (PayPal link above)
You are more than welcome to join us for free.
Will we be able to hear each other?
No, sorry. There is such a delay on the sound with apps such as 'Zoom' that it just wouldn't work. You will just be able to hear Julia who will teach all the parts.
However, as it will be live, you can type comments and greetings which you can all read (and some can be read out loud) - this will help the community and interactive feel of the session.
Will we be able to see each other?
No, not on FB Live. However, later on we can try a free app called 'Zoom' where you can all see each other (muted). The sound quality of this is not as good as FB Live though so maybe we can do this just in sections. Who knows!
Will we be able to perform?
After the period of self-isolation and safe distancing is safely over, we will get together to perform what we have learned and meet our new singing friends face to face. This will be a real occasion for celebration :) If you live too far away to join us, we will live-stream via Zoom so you can join in from your trusty sofa and we can see your faces on a the screen.
This concert will be a fundraiser for Worthing Hospital, to show our appreciation of all they have done.
Do I have to be part of an existing choir?
No. Come and join us online - everyone is welcome.
Do I have to tune in to every session?
If you miss loads of them you may start to feel a little bit lost with the parts. You can always just join in with the tune though!
Are there words?
Yes. Find 'choir resources' on the menu bar where you will find words and sheet music if you want it. There are new songs as well as those our current choir members have started already. We will be using both.
I am not pretending this will be as good as being able to meet together, but it will be something to keep our choir families together when we are apart. We can also use it to welcome new friends along for the ride :)
See you on Facebook Live!
