It is a lot of fun to sing – and it is even more fun to sing together in a choir.
Besides being fun, singing in a choir requires patience, concentration, and teamwork. It also requires each singer to warm up the whole body as well as the remarkable instrument that is the human voice.
In this class, we will mostly be singing a number of rhythmical arrangements (i.e. pop/rock stuff) but we might very well also try on some folk, musical, and even classical arrangements on for size. We will start with some very simple arrangements and then – slowly but surely – move onto arrangements that are a little bit more difficult. That being said: no other musical “skill” is required from the participants than the willingness to sing and have fun with it.
Usually, we will do arrangements for four voice groups: Sopranos, altos, tenors, and basses.
For the pleasure of singing together for its own sake, we aim to build a repertoire for concerts and other arrangements at the IPC. We might do collaborations with other local choirs, just as we will hopefully have the occasion to attend a couple of concerts in the local region.
