UCL Staff Singing Club

7 January 2019

UCL Staff Singing Club seeks new singers – no experience required! The UCL Staff Singing Club has been running for six months and our amazing choir leader, Gitika Partington, is capable of finding music in a stone; we've all been surprised at how good we sound!

UCL Staff Singing Club

We really encourage colleagues to join us and give it a try. You don't need any previous experience of singing in a choir – just enthusiasm. There’s no audition – everyone is welcome – and you don’t need to be able to read music. We had around 70 members last term from all across UCL and we'd love to get 100 singing this term. Singing is a wonderful stress-release mechanism, and contributes to wellbeing at work, as well as just being lots of fun. Last term we sang a range of classic pop songs (Ain’t no Sunshine, Happy Together, Time After Time) as well as some folk, jazz and country songs.

We will be singing again this term, starting at 1pm on Tuesday 15 January, and meeting weekly with a break for half-term/reading week. If you would like to register for the singing club this term, please do so by completing the following doodle poll with your email address. The deadline for registration is Friday 18 January. For any queries, please contact Malika Barakat.

You should be able to commit to at least 8 of the 11 sessions and we will be asking for a donation of £40 to the Student Hardship Fund to encourage commitment and attendance.

The club will begin with new repertoire, and the sessions will be held as below:
