Tauranga choir Everybody Sings has started up again after months of Covid closure – and it has a new name.
The un-auditioned choir is now called All Together Now, and meets every Wednesday evening during term time to sing at the Mount Bible Chapel from 7.15pm-9.15pm.
About 15 of the regulars who had been singing with Everybody Sings for the last two-and-a -half years turned up for the first practice this week, but the choir would like to see more singers of all ages join them – especially men.
Director Rose Treadwell says it’s good to be back singing after so many months apart because of Covid restrictions. Practices now are socially distanced and masks are worn while not singing. Singers learn technique and sing a wide variety of music.
“It was exciting to see everyone back after so many months apart. We had a lot of fun learning three new songs and we’re sounding great. We’d love others to come and join us to enjoy singing again.
“We’d also like to have more men so we can add a deeper sound,” says Rose.
All Together Now is part of an Auckland-based choir group, with several choirs operating in Auckland. Tauranga was the first group to start up outside Auckland, but Covid created difficulties for singing in groups.
Members don’t need to audition, instead they just can join for the joy of singing with others and to improve their own sound. Find out more at: alltogethernow.co.nz
