Come and Sing Day

Perhaps you have been looking for an opportunity to engage in something uplifting and joyous as we approach Spring.  Look no further.  

The Athenaeum Singers are hosting a Come and Sing Day on Saturday 15th March at Christ Church, Warminster, offering the opportunity to spend a day away from the pressure of everyday life and be engrossed in producing beautiful music.  The day will be led by the singer’s Director, Tim Coleman, a tenor soloist himself, who will not only tell us what to do but but give help on how to achieve it.

The benefits of singing are widely recognised; the physical benefits of improved breathing, posture, and muscle tension: the benefits to the mind of having to concentrate on one thing to the exclusion of distractions, and the stimulus of learning a new skill.  Singing releases endorphins which improve our sense of well being and reduce stress, and working together increases social bonding. In fact, if after a day of singing you dont feel you have had good work out, you are doing it wrong!

The day will include much loved choral works by Elgar, Haydn, Handel, Mozart and Parry.  The ability to read music is really useful but not essential.  Many singers are quick to pick up their parts by ear and are supported by others nearby, carried along by the swell of the sound.  Choral singing is a cooperative venture and the various parts blend together to produce the magnificent end product.

There will be coffee on arrival and drinks throughout the day, all covered by the cost of the ticket.  Also included in the charge (£20) is an excellent ploughman’s lunch, and cake.  Hard to resist really!

Scores are available to hire for £2 so you need bring nothing except yourself. Book your ticket via the Singer’s website, www.athenaeumsingers.com. or telephone 01373 451573

The day will conclude with a short free concert at 4.30 to which everyone is welcome.  This will be the culmination of the day’s efforts and demonstrate our achievements.
