The Songbirds were founded in 2014, and since our formation have grown from strength to strength and the future really does look very promising for us.
This year we have held our title as Ladies Choir & Sacred Choir 1st with the Kettering and District Eisteddfod. We also went on to win 1st Community Choir at the Oundle Festival of Music & Drama. The Choir were also awarded with the prestigious Rose Bowl Award for the best musical interpretation of the competition that day.
The choir consists of approximately 23 ladies, ages ranging from 20-60+. Some have musical backgrounds, some who don’t read music, some who had never sung in a choir until they joined The Songbirds. If you fall into any of those categories you are more than welcome.
One of the many benefits of joining a choir is the social aspect. There is a fantastic array of individuals who all come together for the love of singing, who like to get together outside of choir. We celebrated Christmas as a choir at Prezzo just before our Christmas Concert in 2015 and have plans for a Summer Social before we break over August.
