It is a good option if you enjoy singing in a group and want to meet some new people. We are a lively bunch, but do hope to learn as many songs as possible. Your singing skills will slowly improve although you will not be made to do anything you are uncomfortable doing. We mainly work towards assembly performances and our end of year showcase but we will decide whether or not to do so based on how comfortable people are with it and how far we’ve gotten with our songs. No prior singing experience or musical knowledge is needed, and we are welcome to all!
