Paphos Zingers choir

Chris Collins

I joined Zingers in February 2013, my wife originally wanted to join after seeing a performance at the Samaritans Fair and an ad for new members in the newspaper, and I agreed to go with her.  Unfortunately she left as she had great difficulty with remembering the words, so you are left with me.

Apart from singing at the Central Hall in Westminster as a 10 year old as part of a primary school carol concert, my singing experience is low.  Unless, of course, you count the occasional drunken Karaoke effort.

I really enjoy the opportunity to engage in making good music, I also enjoy the friendship and camaraderie. I feel a real disappointment when we have no rehearsals on a Monday, which isn’t often thankfully.

My one & only television appearance was in 1984 on a pop music programme called Starburst that ran for only 6 shows.  I was the paralytic drunk on a ferry from Felixstowe to Zeebrugge with live music from The Fortunes, Marmalade and Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders, none of which I remember.
