Appeal for singers

The Lyric Community Singers’ rehearsals resume on Saturday, February 25, and they are looking forward to seeing existing members, as well as new members, for another year.

If you enjoy singing together in a group and want to switch off from the stresses of life for a couple of hours, then go along and join in. Experience the buzz of singing in harmony and sing for the sheer joy of it. The Lyric do folk songs, pop songs, classical songs, happy songs, sad songs – a wide variety of music to suit all tastes, led by Sue St Joseph.

There are no auditions, and you don’t have to be able to read music – all you have to do is to enjoy singing and to want to do this as part of a group.

The Lyric Community Singers are a community choir that offer opportunities for all members of the community to meet socially. They believe that everyone should have the opportunity to sing and there is growing scientific evidence that singing is good for you because it promotes physical health and mental wellbeing; helps keep the brain sharp, improving concentration and confidence; encourages team work; and it’s a great social activity and fun.

All ages are welcome and they meet in St Andrew & St Cuthbert’s Church Hall, Kirkcudbright (off the High Street, down the lane between the police station and the library) from 10-11.30am. Subsequent sessions will be at the same time on the fourth Saturday of every month. The cost is £1, payable at the door, which will include refreshments.
