South Holland Singers encourage new members to join Spalding group to make friends and promote wellbeing

A group of singers is keen to encourage new members to join in the new year.

South Holland Singers in Spalding is inviting those who enjoy singing – and who are looking for a new year challenge – to sign up.

A choir spokesman said: “The idea is to encourage people who enjoy singing but have perhaps felt, for a variety of reasons, that choirs aren’t their thing, to give it a go.

“The group is friendly and welcoming.

“There are no auditions and although an ability to read music is an advantage, it is not a requirement.

“Not only can singing regularly improve your general health, it also reduces stress and improves your social life.”

An informal rehearsal is taking place on Saturday, January 13 to give the choir a try.

The event, a first for the long-established group, will be led by musical director Sam Graper and aims to demonstrate in a relaxed and friendly setting the many benefits of singing with like-minded people.

Admission to the rehearsal – at Spalding Baptist Church Hall in Swan Street, Spalding – is free and refreshments will be served from 2-4pm. The audience will be invited to join in or listen.

Members say that being in the choir helps with making friends, the opportunity to sing different types of music, a sense of well-being and raising of the spirits.

The choir usually meets on Thursday evenings during the autumn and spring terms from 7.30-9.30pm at the Baptist Church.
