The Musicality Singers

Who knew it could feel so good singing as part of a choir? Not me! It’s something I’d thought about many times and I’m so glad I finally took the plunge.

I joined the choir a few months before COVID-19 struck, so it’s wonderful to be back rehearsing once again. I certainly didn’t want to audition for a choir, so the Musicality Singers were perfect for me to join. I thought that my voice was pitched as an alto. However, how wrong I was, as during my first rehearsal it was clear that the alto part was a bit high for me and I moved to join the tenors. So, in doing that I doubled the number of lady tenors.

Part of the enjoyment is due in no small part, of course, to having a talented musical director, Greg Watson, who has made the learning fun. After all, Greg is in his 10th year of leading us, so he is clearly doing something right. Greg is fully supported by Jennifer Demichelli who not only accompanies us but warms us up ready to sing in spectacular fashion.

We have an amazingly wide-ranging repertoire that covers music from: New York’s Broadway and London’s West End; from Bowie, Queen and Sting; and classic pop and choral numbers, with new music continually being added. We put on two main fundraising concerts a year – one in summer and one just before Christmas – to help subsidise the charity and community performances we undertake. Indeed, our first charity event for 2022 is at St John’s Church in Worksop on 2nd May at 2.30pm.
