The Joy of Singing – Raise Your Voices Choir, Wirksworth

Raise Your Voices choir was delighted to perform a selection of songs at the Wirksworth Farmers Market on Saturday May 4th. The stalls and streets seemed busier than ever with so many folk gathered in the warm spring sunshine - a splendid day for all.

To embrace and share this love of singing, RYV is hosting another “Big Sing” on Saturday 15th June, from 10am to 2.30pm in Wirksworth Town Hall. A fun event for massed singers, offering the opportunity for a large gathering of singers to get together and have a great day of song, simply raising the rafters with the mighty sound of many voices in harmony. No performance, no audience, so no pressure!

Three accomplished choir leaders, Frances Watt, Zee Musik and Lester Simpson will each be bringing different, distinctive styles of teaching to the Big Sing, along with loads of experience, enthusiasm, and songs from a broad mix of musical genres from around the world for everyone to learn, all acapella, mostly by ear but with scores as well.

RYV is looking forward to performing at the Kirk Ireton Street Choirs evening event on Saturday 22nd June.

The choir is always happy honing songs for performances, but also loves singing just for the joy of it! Their two hour sessions are every Thursday at Wirksworth Town Hall 7-9pm on a ‘Pay as you Go’ basis at only £4 weekly. All are welcome, experienced or novice…
