A singing choir based in KENDAL is looking to increase its numbers by offering free introductory sessions in September.
FELLas was established in South Lakeland four years ago and is taught by professional musical director and well-known local soprano Emily Robinson.
The group is a choir for male voices and has a repertoire covering an eclectic style of songs. Pop songs, songs from musicals, folk, gospel, and even sacred music are sung both accompanied and unaccompanied, often in three- or four-part harmony.
The FELLas are now looking to increase their number and will offer free initiation sessions on September 7 and 14.
New members will learn to sing at the performance level and the FELLas have been widely praised for the quality of their singing and entertainment value at recent public performances.
Fellas practices aim to bring newcomers up to speed in a comfortable, understanding environment and to learn new songs that will culminate in the opportunity, but not the obligation, to sing to family and friends before Christmas.
FELLas meet at 6:00 p.m. in the halls of the Unitarian Church, Branthwaite Brow, Kendal every Wednesday during school terms. Practices last until 8:15 p.m. when some members retire for liquid refreshment and a chat.
While FELLas is a singing group, it is also a friendship group looking to make new friends.
Many members have truly benefited from the camaraderie of the group, when otherwise lives can be trying. People who wish to learn to sing in a choir must arrive at 6:00 p.m. on September 7 and/or September 14 or express their interest by email to: [email protected]
They will be greeted upon arrival and made to feel welcome. For more information on the press release, please contact Martin Douglas [email protected]
