Sweet Harmony Community Choir

Location

English Congregational Church schoolroom, Lammas St, Carmarthen SA31 3AL

Description

Sweet Harmony was born in April 2014. There are usually around 50 members, some who have been part of the group since the beginning and others who have joined us along the way.

We sing in harmony and a capella – without instrumental accompaniment – embracing a broad spectrum of music: Blues, gospel, funk, pop and folk from all over the world, including songs from right here in Wales. There is no need to read music – all songs are taught by ear

The singers are very warm and welcome new members.

Absolutely everyone is welcome;  humans of all ages, genders, racial heritage and levels of musical experience.

We have taster sessions at the start of each term and then people commit for the whole term. This really strengthens regularity of attendance and allows us to go deeply into the repertoire without having to reteach the parts every week. Members have access to recordings of harmony parts so they can practise between sessions.  

Our main emphasis is on enjoying the learning and singing of gorgeous songs together, indulging in the pure deliciousness of creating mouthwatering harmonies, but we also like sharing our repertoire with others. We often do a performance at the end of term and sometimes sing at other events. Our gigs have included the following events/ venues: The National Botanical Gardens, The Narberth A Capella Voice Festival, Carmarthen Inter-faith day and Carmarthen White Ribbon Walk.

Session times

Wednesdays 6.30 - 8.30pm

Swindon Community Choir

Location

Central Community Centre, Emlyn Square, Swindon, SN1 5BP

Description

Swindon Community Choir was started in 2000 as the Swindon Scratch Choir in the hayloft at Lower Shaw Farm, West Swindon, by Linda Lee.  Linda had a dream to create a real community choir in Swindon – an all-inclusive choir that anyone could join to experience the joy of singing with others in spine-tingling harmony!

How many people were told as a child at school that they couldn’t sing?  We set out to prove this wrong!  Singing is good for our mental and physical health and creates a sense of belonging to a community.

We teach the songs in 2, 3 or 4 part harmony, taught simultaneously by three or four song leaders in small groups.  You choose which group your voice is most comfortable with.  When the parts have been taught, everyone gets back together to sing the complete song and make a fantastic sound.

We sing mainly for the joy and fun of it, and we do occasional performances that people join in if they want – no obligation!

Session times

Alternate Monday evenings, 7.15 to 8.45pm
