Dear Anne 
Join us for more wonderful weekly singing!

Monday Singing returns! Weekly but not on Bank hols from April 24th 2017

We are delighted to be singing in the Spring at Studio Upstairs for a second series of 5 week Learn to sing sessions, in this beautiful local Art gallery, 7-8.30pm, 2-4 Park Street in the centre of Croydon. (Where Turtle’s used to be!). Dates below.

Join us either on a drop in basis for our themed evenings or save money by joining in a block. The themes will always incorporate some general global harmony songs as well.

We don’t meet on the Bank Holidays. Upcoming themes:

April 24th     – Relaxation as it is Stress awareness month and a little Jazz as it is Jazz appreciation month!

May 8th   – An Elizabethan Catch about May, along with a little Gospel and a touch of Tanzania

May 15th – A little LGBT item for IDAHOT day plus some Taize and a Tree song!

May 22nd – Let’s revisit some of our favourites so far and take them up a notch! Plus a surprise new one. Still easy to drop in to.

June 5th – Something for World Environmental day and World Oceans day.

Fees: 5 week block £25 or £18 concessions. Drop in rates £7 or £5 concessions so you can still miss one and pay less by block booking. Please bring cheques (payable to Creative Croydon) or cash on the night. Thanks!

Please book via the eventbrite link 
Or if you want to bring your money on the night please come at 6.45 and please let us know if you are coming so we can put out the right number of chairs.

A song from me
Going for Youtube likes for my cover song as I hope to get funding for my EP: Please take a listen and give me a Youtube like, if you do! You can also subscribe to hear my new songs if you woud like to. 🙂–QIg

Carers choir session with Katie Rose 
Monthly sessions take place on Wednesdays 10.30am-11.45am – there’s time for a cup of tea before/ after in the Cafe at the Carers Support Centre. It’s always fine to just drop in when you can, we know that Carers have lots of commitments. Call them for the next session date.

Stuck for birthday or anniversary gifts?
Singing vouchers for a personal singing or speaking session can make a lovely gift and a joint session can be a nice thing to do together. One to one sessions can help a dream come true, for speaking, singing, or songwriting. Or you can always treat yourself! Ask Catherine for details if maybe interested.

Wishing you a joyful and harmonious Spring!
