Let’s face it, singing in a choir is the most fun you can have with your clothes on.
When you’re feeling a little flat, nothing gives you more of a trill than some simple harmony.
And it’s not just about the music – you’ll never leave a choir without making some lifelong friends.
Here’s a few you only know if you sing in a choir.
<strong> The weirder the warm up, the better it is</strong>
‘Hmmmmmmmmmmm’, *pant pant pant* ‘zzzZZZZZzzzzz’, *moves tongue round face*
<strong> There’s always at least one diva</strong>
If you don’t know who they are then, yes, it’s you!
<strong>Smiling stops you singing flat</strong>
Or possibly hypnotises the audience into not noticing your mistakes.
<strong>There’s always one who has just learnt how to harmonise</strong>
And is going to show off by adding it in, even when it’s not meant to be there.
<strong>There’s always one who doesn’t really know what harmonising is</strong>
But this doesn’t stop them adding it in by mistake.
<strong>If they’re not in the hall they’re in the pub</strong>
Because beer is very good for the vocal chords.
<p class=”alt-font-bold”><strong>There’s always one who sings really loudly during the bits they know, then mumbles the rest</strong></p>
Ok, we’ve all been this one at some point.
<strong>What happens in chorus stays in chorus</strong>
Not to mention the after-show do.
<strong>There’s always one who ‘corrects’ the MD, or tells the room a fact to show they’re musical</strong>
This fact is almost always wrong.
<strong>When the conductor says ‘quiet’ she means it</strong>
But this won’t stop the gossiping of the girls aged 13-93.
<strong>It’s hard to keep a straight face when the sopranos get warbly</strong>
This includes the sopranos.
<strong>As long as the face is smiling, and the lips are moving, you can get away with anything</strong>
