I joined Zingers in 2022 as an alto. I was “gently” persuaded by my friend Wendi to come along. I was reluctant as I’ve never sung in a choir or anywhere else for that matter. My background is dancing. I was made to feel welcome from day 1so this gave me initial confidence. The alto section supported me & this has really brought me out of myself. Maybe dancing has made me ” feel the music”, as in dancing you have to have rhythm. I’m now singing songs I never thought I could. Raising funds for our local cancer charity is a great incentive to push yourself to achieve a good sound. I’ve also made many new friends.
I would encourage anyone to face your fear, you never know what you can achieve.
