Meet The Team:
I never believed I could sing. At school I failed the audition. Hull Community Voices doesn’t have an audition. I’ve grown so much in confidence and love both the singing and the great friends I’ve made through the group.
I first visited Hull Community Voices with the Riverside choir and it was a very enjoyable and welcoming experience. When my choir closed, I decided to join Hull Community Voices and I’ve been attending ever since. I love the variety of songs we sing and the friends I have made.
I always wanted to be able to sing but never felt confident enough in my ability to join a choir.
I was also looking for an activity to help me manage my stress levels. Hull Community Voices provided a friendly and supportive environment that has helped me become a more confident singer. The group members all have really different backgrounds and experiences but we create beautiful harmonies and sing a great range of songs from all over the world.
I have always loved singing remembering all my songs learnt at school. I have never done any singing for years until joining Hull Community Voices 8 years ago which has helped me to find my voice again. I now sing with confidence and enjoy the lovely songs and sounds we make singing with such a lovely welcoming group.
I really enjoy the choir as it is friendly and informal. You don`t have to be able to read music or pass an audition but the singing is great and gives you a really good feeling by the end of the session.
Often when I have been to hear a choir I used to think.’ I would love to sing in a choir, but I can’t really sing’. Well one evening I heard a choir at my local church and I thought.. ‘well stop thinking about it and do it, you now have the time to try new things.’ So I looked online and saw Hull Community Voices and saw no audition was needed. I mentioned it to a friend so we both came along and after a few weeks we both felt part of the group and found the people very friendly and welcoming. Also singing is good for lifting your spirits and when you are singing with other people you really feel you CAN sing.
