The West Bridgford Liberty Singers are an adult community choir. Meeting (roughly) every other Monday at Lutterell Hall in West Bridgford, we learn and sing pop songs from across the decades. There are no auditions and no need for previous experience as everything is taught is an easy to follow way, by ear. You definitely don’t need to be able to read music.
We regularly perform at local events such as the West Bridgford Prom In The Park, The local lights switch on and have a regular slot at Portello Lounge in West Bridgford. We can’t wait to get back to singing together in public after 18 months of signing on zoom.
The benefits of group singing are immense. There’s well documented evidence that singing makes us feel a bit better, but I believe that this is amplified massively when we sing in groups. The sense of community which we have developed with this community choir is amazing. New friendships have been made and old ones consolidated. There are families who come together to sing (my mum and dad are both active members!) There’s always a feeling of being ‘in it together’, whether this be when we are learning new material or performing in public. We are strong together and this has a value for all of us.
We are currently looking to recruit men to balance our already marvellous sound. Fees are £15 a month on a recurring payment which runs all year round. Sessions are Alternate Mondays 7.30-9.30pm (doors opening at 7.15pm)
