Calling those who sing in
JOIN THE SCOTLAND ISLAND
SINGERS: our own Community acapella choir.
You might have seen us at the comedy night singing our Carpark Song. We
are a small group of people who enjoy singing together. Our leader is
Jessica McGowan who has years of musical experience, loves singing, and
brings enthusiasm and fun to the group.
What do we sing? One silly song about a carpark! Plus some easy songs
like rounds, call and response, and more challenging 3-part harmonies.
Our material crosses several genres from world music, gospel, folk,
classical… the main criteria is that the songs are enjoyable to sing.
Acapella mostly (ie. Unaccompanied). It’s about the joy that comes from
blending our voices…. And it’s about having fun.
A choir needs some ‘great’ singers, yes. But it also needs some people
who aren’t going to feature or do big impressive solos – it needs some
singers to stay in the background and just add bulk to the sound. You
don’t have to have a big powerful voice, as long as you’re (mostly) in
Next meeting is the 5th of
March from 2.15pm-4.30 pm. Following that, March 12th. We meet at a
house on the top of the island. A lift can be arranged if needed.
We always have a break for tea and cake.
Cost- only $10 a week.
For more details, or to get on the mailing list, or join our WhatsApp
group, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Jessica on
