Inspired by the wildness of the natural world, Wild Chorus is a performance choir led by Dave Camlin. By singing together in nature, we hope to promote the importance of wild places for the biodiversity and health of our planet.
Wild Chorus is a relaxed and friendly performance choir, for singers with some experience, and who are looking for a fun vocal challenge with like-minded singers. The emphasis is on having fun making a good sound together, singing material from rock, pop and folk traditions from around the world. You're expected to be able to:
Commit to weekly rehearsal and personal practice in order to learn repertoire
We meet (term-time) on Tuesday evenings 19:00 - 21:00 at the Friends Meeting House, Kirkgate, Cockermouth.
During weekly rehearsals, we warm our bodies and voices up, and learn songs to perform as well as simply singing for pleasure. We learn repertoire mainly by ear, although lyrics, scores and rehearsal MP3s are all available to help you learn. You don’t need to be able to ‘sight read’ notation, but you do need to be able (or willing to learn!) to follow it.
Wild Chorus is about connection:
with each other;
with our collective creativity;
with, in and through nature in the promotion of living more sustainably
