Shylarks

We're back inside at our usual venue!

A friendly and informal weekly group. Just like Manchester Larks, we sing a variety of songs, including some from the standard acapella repertoire, original songs and arrangements, jazz, soul, folk, pop, songs from around the world… whatever takes our fancy. We’re not a performance group, but we occasionally find ourselves getting together with other singing groups for a joint sing, supporting a local event or singing under the tree outside at Christmas. New members are welcome at any time. No experience is necessary and you don’t need to be able to read music. Email Faith to get the details on how we’re managing sessions as we make our way back indoors!

This group, that has been going since 2007, is led by Faith and a Teaching Team made up of members of the group. The Teaching Team is open to any regular member of Shylarks; no previous experience of teaching songs is required and team members get as involved as they feel able, from supporting another leader within a song, to teaching one part of a song, to teaching whole songs in several parts and leading whole sessions. Training and support is given, as required, at separate weekly Teaching Team sessions.

“I love having the opportunity to sing regularly, get to know some really friendly people and hear the songs develop, but life is busy so what’s even better about this group is that nobody minds if you don’t turn up every week – it’s the perfect combination!”
