SING, LEARN, LAUGH - How joining a community choir is good for the soul!
POPVOX CHOIR CROYDON Launches on Wednesday 16th October at Ark Oval Primary Academy 7.30pm - 9pm
‘Have you ever thought of joining a choir?’ asks PopVox Choir leader Susanna Tidy. ‘Being a choir member is more than just joining a club. It’s being part of a fantastic group of people who come together each week and sing!’
PopVox Choir is opening in Croydon on Wednesday 16th October at the Ark Oval Primary Academy. ‘We are inviting all Croydon residents to come and try our free taster session,’ says Susanna. ‘There are no auditions and everyone is welcome.’
The choir’s repertoire is a range of popular songs, from Stevie Wonder and the Beatles to the latest Beyonce ballad. PopVox work towards concerts several times a year to raise money for local charities. As well as having fun, the choir teaches members singing and performance technique.
‘Singing is good for the soul,’ says Susanna. ‘It’s almost impossible not to walk out of rehearsals with a smile on your face.’ The positive impact of group singing on ones’ health is well documented. Doctor Emma Hayward of Leicester University says ‘Joining a choir is a great thing to do. Group singing benefits wellbeing and increases levels of oxytocin.’
PopVox was started in Liverpool in 2011 by founder Emma Nowell. It has now established nine choirs nationwide. Croydon will be London’s premiere PopVox branch. Places are limited for the free taster session so contact us now to reserve your place! Don’t miss out!
