THE COTTON STREET SINGERS – JAZZ CHOIR

OPEN REHEARSAL NIGHT 1ST FEB

We would like to invite you to come along to our open rehearsal for a brand new Jazz Choir, drawing on the excellent jazz singing talent to be found in the West of Scotland. We have worked hard over the past few months to get the background work done, and we are now recruiting singers!

We are looking for strong voices, people who can read music fairly well, have a good sense of rhythm (and humour) and work well in a group.

jazzThe aims of the choir are  to bring great jazz songs to a wider audience, and also, very importantly, to have fun creating high quality music together.

We are going to start building our repertoire with jazz standards,and move soon onto original arrangements and compositions.We will sing both a cappella and accompanied pieces and will use a variety of musicians as and when the need arises.

Our founding members of 4 voices performed as the support act for the wonderful Liane Carroll  at Brookfield last November, and they did it after only 3 rehearsals!

Here is a link to one of the songs they sang that night

The open rehearsal  on Friday is in Pace Theatre Company’s rehearsal studios in the Spires Building, School Wynd, Paisley, PA1 2DA  at 7.30 pm.

In the future the rehearsals will be held on Monday nights, starting on Monday 18th February, and will be based in both Paisley and Glasgow.

Hope to see you on Friday and do spread the word, the  more the merrier!

If you fancy getting involved but next Friday is no use to you, then let us know and we’ll take a note of your name – contact details are below.

…..and of course get in touch if you have any other questions with either of us 🙂
