Join Echo – Inspiration’s
exciting sister choirs
19 April 2013
Come on admit it, how many of us have stood in front of the mirror with a ‘hairbrush’ microphone singing along to the latest pop, rock and Motown songs on the radio or imagining being in front of a band doing the ‘swing thing’? Well now you can do it for real by joining Inspiration’s exciting sister choirs ‘Echo’ based in Newcastle and Leeds.
Our new term is about to launch and Echo Newcastle’s theme, is ‘Summer Nights’ and you’ve guessed it, you can be your own John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John as they will be singing THAT song from Grease as well as many other songs with the hot summer theme such as ‘Walking on Sunshine’, ‘Summer in the City and ‘Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In’
If you love swing and a more ‘jazz’ style imagining Ella or Frank and the romantic ’40’s big band era, Echo Leeds will be performing songs from ‘The Great American Songbook’. The concert will feature many of your jazz favourites including, ‘I Got Rhythm’, ‘I Love Paris’ and ‘The Man I Love’.
Joining ECHO gives you the opportunity to learn new and different ways of singing favourite, familiar songs in a friendly and fun atmosphere. All the music is provided and our expert Music Directors guide you through it step by step at our weekly rehearsals. (Mark Deeks in Newcastle and Andy Booth in Leeds). Echo choirs are much smaller in numbers, there are no auditions and we are all very supportive of each other no matter how much or little singing experience we have. There is nothing like the buzz you get on concert day from performing in front of an audience. So if you share our passion for singing, come along and give it a go.
Echo choirs perform three exciting concerts a year and all details of how to join either choir, rehearsal dates and performance information can be found on our ‘How to join Echo’ page.
