Music Classes: Platform Singers Online Choir

3 Sep 2021 → 17 Dec 2021
Fridays → 2.30pm - 4pm
16yrs +

Our Platform Singers choir takes place online (via Zoom) every Friday afternoon at 2.30pm. There is a social part to the session with a catch up and chat before the choir part starts - this kicks off at 2.30pm and joining in on this is entirely optional.

Free to attend, the choir is a fun, relaxed and informal group for those wanting to sing and meet new people.

Led by a professional singer we are always looking for members of all ages and abilities to get involved – no previous experience is required.

Some benefits related to singing include helping with breathing techniques, improving posture, lowering stress levels and providing a bit of a work out!

Would you like to join us? If so or if you would like more information please email info@platform-online.co.uk for details.

Marlene, member of Platform Singers Choir, said: “Being able to go on Zoom with the choir has been a positive thing for me. I’ve felt like part of a community. Being online isn’t as difficult as I imagined, and I’d say to anyone thinking of joining to give it a try.”

Choir leader Rachel said: “Singing is fun and social and can also help with breathing techniques, improving posture, lowering stress levels and providing a bit of a work out! 10 minutes of singing a day can help clear sinuses, improve posture and release endorphins - your happy hormones.”

“If you feel stressed, sing or hum your favourite song – it will also help to calm and steady your breath! A few fun tips to make you smile: whisper beep bop to yourself and repeat until you are no longer sad, pinch your nose closed and say sneep snoop then boop-dee-doop in a really deep voice”.
