Growing Singing Kendal (Monday evening)

Monday Evenings

7pm to 9pm (see term dates below);
The Town Hall, Kendal

This group’s been running in Kendal since 2011 and always welcomes new voices.

Come along to a taster session for free just to see if it’s your kind of thing.

There are no auditions, no solos and you don’t have to read music at all.

We’re usually around 25-30 singers of varying abilities from nervous beginners to much more experienced.  We learn songs entirely by ear (“repeat after me”!) and all of it’s “a capella” which just means we don’t use instruments or backing tracks and instead sing unaccompanied. Songs are from a wide variety of singing traditions and sources but all are wonderful to sing in glorious harmony.

The Monday evening is a termly group – so people join at the beginning of a term (or close to the beginning) and don’t “drop in” for single sessions.

Water/squash is provided but feel free to bring a flask for the break time if you prefer.

You’ll get most out of the group if you join at, or soon after, the beginning of any term.

The cost works out at £6 a session multiplied by the number of sessions that term (it varies). But we really don’t want anyone to miss out because of money worries so if, for you, that is more than you can afford, then just pay what you can for the term.
