The Big Sing in Halstead
"The BIG Sing! - together we can show Halstead that WE CAN Sing!"
The BIG Sing are coming to Halstead, with their very first MORNING choir! The BIG Sing, who run a number of choirs across Essex, Kent and London will be coming to Halstead on a Tuesday morning as of January 2018 and hope that the local community will accept the challenge to get Halstead singing.
BIG sing tutor Daniel Ribbits will be leading the choir. Daniel has previously led choirs across Essex and Suffolk, performing on Radio 2, Good Morning Britain and The ONE show to name but a few. He has recently moved into the Halstead area and is looking forward to getting his community singing.
The BIG sing was originally formed in 2011 by Gemma and Howard Francis, to help in Witham Carnival. They had just six weeks to get the residents of Witham singing and the response was amazing in just six weeks they had 45 singers. They have since opened choirs in Chelmsford, Rayleigh, Brentwood, Maldon and Ipswich as well as in Kent and London and have grown to become a family for all ages.
The choirs are open to everyone - you don't need to have a fantastic singing voice -just bring your enthusiasm! There are no auditions and weekly rehearsals are very relaxed and most of all fun! The songs taught are pop, Motown, contemporary, inspirational, soul, and gospel songs. All with uplifting and motivating lyrics!
As The BIG Sing grows we are continuing to reach out to more people of all ages and backgrounds. We aim to unite people with music and have seen the choir members grow in confidence, experience the thrill of performing on stage, make new friends and belong to a new choir family. The BIG Sing not only has thriving community choirs but also advanced choirs (The BIG Sing Pro), children's choirs (LITTLE Sing), singing groups for babies and tots (TINY Sing), school choirs, and corporate singing choirs.
The BIG Sing will start in Halstead on Tuesday mornings as of the 9th January 2018 at the Empire Theatre, from 10-12. The cost is £7 pay as you go. And if you can't wait that long, the good news is that you can attend a taster session on Tues 12th December 2017, 10-12. For just £7, why not take a break from the Christmas rush and pop along and see if you like it?
