Here at St Luke’s, we love music of all styles. Among our members, we have many talented singers and musicians – some professional, some who make music for fun – but mostly it’s about the sheer pleasure and camaraderie of joining together to raise our voices in joyful harmony.
If you fancy brushing off your vocal chords for a rousing sing-song (lubricated by a few drinks, perhaps), we have just the thing. Back by popular demand, the Singaround returns this Friday 12 July, at 7.30pm, in the church hall. It’s an informal evening of communal singing – think folk and singable songs – that anyone can join in with. (A bit like the singalong section of Crispin’s Speakeasy events, if you’ve been to one of those.)
‘You don’t need to be able to read music or even have a good singing voice to enjoy the Singaround,’ says organiser Bernadette Cagnoni. ‘Just come along, join in and have fun.’
If you want to sing a solo or lead a song (or indeed tell a joke or read a poem), you can certainly do that. Bring along your guitar or banjo, if you fancy it. But if you’d rather keep a low profile, that’s fine too. There’ll be lots of songs you can pick up as you go along, and words will be provided where needed.
If you’re planning to come along, please email Bernadette on firstname.lastname@example.org so she has an idea of numbers. Then just bring yourself, and something to drink, and get ready for a hearty Singaround. (There’s no charge, but please make a contribution towards the cost of using the hall.)
