Amazing Acapella is a drop in acapella harmony singing group for all. We sing songs from the world music, folk and pop traditions plus original songs and arrangements written for acapella community choirs. The group is very friendly with lots of laughter alongside the singing. Our group is lead by Jenny Goodman who is one of the most experienced acapella harmony community choir leaders in the UK. Jenny is a founder member of The Natural Voice Network and is committed to singing being for everyone. We learn all our songs by ear so there is no need to read music. We also start each session with a warm up to prepare our bodies, breath and voice for singing. We are not a performing group but we do occasionally take to the streets to entertain the folk of Holmfirth and have taken part in fundraising events - people can choose whether or not they take part in these events. Do come along!
Come and join us if .... you love to sing in a group, you've always wanted to sing in a group, you're scared to sing in a group!! In all cases you will be made welcome. Do you also love harmony or have always wanted to sing harmony? Then this groups for you. We love the tingle factor of human voices creating harmony together ... and we're very friendly (-:
Additional Info for Choristers
This group is open to all. There are no auditions and all songs are taught by ear so you don't need to read music or have any previous experience of singing or singing in harmony. There are warm ups to get your body, breath and voice relaxed and ready to sing. We don't tell you where to sing - there are no formal categories like soprano, alto, tenor, bass and we move around from song to song. Our material is mostly from the world music and folk traditions plus original material written for acapella community choirs. We do sing the occasional pop classic but never classical material or songs from the shows.
Amazing Acapella is lead by Jenny Goodman - her mission is to remind everyone that singing is part of being alive - it is our birthright to raise our voices together in song. She runs Amazing Acapella with the aim of developing confidence, self esteem and connection between people and sending everyone away feeling GOOD!
