Carers’ Choir

This is a friendly, informal lunchtime choir, run in conjunction with Sheffield Carers.  We particularly welcome carers – with or without the person they care for – and ex-carers.  But everyone is welcome here, whatever age or background.

March 2022

This choir meets on Friday lunchtime, upstairs in the Central United Reformed Church on Norfolk Street in central Sheffield, near the Crucible Theatre. It’s on lots of bus routes and just round the corner from the tram at Castle Square or the Cathedral.

It’s open to anyone who feels like coming for a sing on a Monday lunchtime. You don’t have to have any experience or feel you have a great voice. Everyone can sing and enjoy singing with other people.

Singing is a great way of staying healthy – it’s gentle exercise, encourages you to breathe more deeply and slowly, and build core muscle strength.  It’s a lovely way of connecting with other people without having to find something to say.  You make something beautiful together that you could not achieve on your own.  So whether you are carrying around stress from your job or your home responsibilities, or feeling lonely, singing can help you take a break from what’s on your mind.

If you’re interested, come along and see if you like it!  It costs £3 a session.

We understand if you can’t come every week – work and family commitments are important and illness can’t be helped.  We sing a mixture of songs from around the world and different eras. Some are very short and learned by ear; there is printed music for the longer ones.

There will be performances in the summer and at Christmas (not compulsory, if you’re shy, but most people get a real buzz out of performing even if they’re nervous beforehand).
