Major Tonic Choir Waterloo.

 

GREAT NEWS.

FULL CHOIR REHEARSALS!!!

The FULL choir will be back together earlier than intended on 8th June 2021.

We have the power bank now to power the keybaord and amp. And a mic so that I don‘t go hoarse outside.

New and old members will join our stalwart Zoom singers who have been keeping the choir going over the past 14 months. We are ready to meet again as a full choir of 30 members.

Over this time the Major Tonic Zoom singers have been rehearsing new material and we want to allow enough time for everyone to catch up to be ready for our concert.

Musical Director

The first in person rehearsal of our Summer term 2021 was at 2:00pm on 25th May outside!

Since the beginning of this crisis in March 2020, rehearsals have been held on Zoom every Tuesday in term time.

Normally rehearsals for Major Tonic Choir Waterloo  are held once a week in term times on Tuesday afternoons at Birchdale Road Methodist Church, 2A Birchdale Road,  Waterloo, L22 9QX

(Off St John’s Road, see map opposite).

Members are of all ages, from all walks of life. Any adult (18+) is welcome to join – whatever experience.

Subscriptions 

We make singing accessible for everyone, regardless of musical experience. We spend time on voice parts to make learning to sing in harmony easy.

The session subscription is £5, spread over 12 months, making an affordable £16.25 per month.

Performances

We have shared the spirit of Major Tonic by singing at local care homes with groups of singers. 

Our first concert was at Green Heys Care home in Waterloo on 7th May at 2pm.

We sing in unison and in 2, 3 and 4 part harmonies.

We also put on concerts for the public.
