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.
The 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
