Local Vocals Pop Choir

Every Thursday, 7 pm - 9 pm New Spring Church, Ossett

Let's Get Up and Sing!

Ever wanted to just get up and sing your heart out? Why shouldn’t you? Choir practice is a brilliant opportunity for you to find your inner voice - and you shouldn’t ever have to worry about sounding your best!

Led by Fanfare founder and tutor Jenna Fan, Local Vocals is the studio’s resident choir, and it’s open to people of all ages and all experiences. You don’t have to be able to read a single note - and no, you don’t have to be Lesley Garrett or Russell Watson to take part, either!

We’re all about bringing people together. Hence ‘Local’ Vocals - a fun and friendly group where you can make new friends, learn new songs, and maybe even find out something new about your own talents!

Local Vocals largely performs pop songs - so it’s likely you’ll already know much of the music we get into. However, we love dipping into the odd classic here and there!

It's a Musical Adventure!

Local Vocals gives people from all over Wakefield the chance to let loose and discover a new love of music and performing. Not everyone’s had the privilege of making music from an early age - we aim to break down these barriers and make singing accessible, affordable and enjoyable for all.

HOW TO WARM UP YOUR SINGING VOICE

You wouldn’t lift weights without first warming up and you wouldn’t do an aerobics class without first warming up, so why would you sing without first warming up? When we sing we are using our vocal cords (soft tissue) and the larynx muscles and if we don’t stretch and warm them up before starting to […]
