Do you LOVE musicals? If the answer is YES — then there is a new choir launching in Cardiff this September and you need to be part of it! It's called TECHNICOLOUR.
Our tagline is 'Musicals Remixed' — so every song is reimagined with new harmonies, new sound and new style. So, if you've got musicals on your running playlist but you dance to Beyonce is the clubs, OR you belt out a showtune in the shower but then cover yourself in glitter at festivals and rave to house music — you've just found the answer to your prayers!
There are 3 FREE taster sessions this summer being held at Chapter Arts Centre (in the Common Room) for people interested in joining…
* Wednesday 1st August 2018: 19:30 — 21:00
* Wednesday 15th August 2018: 19:30 — 21:00
* Wednesday 29th August 2018: 19:30 — 21:00
They'll be another group in the room just before us so it's best to wait in the bar (perhaps with a cheeky pint?) until about 19:25 and then head up. They'll also be some social drinks in the bar afterwards for anyone who fancies it!
Book your space through Eventbrite for one of the FREE tasters (or feel free to book onto all three!). You must have booked through Eventbrite to attend. The choir is open to adults (18+) of all genders and abilities. You can choose whether you use lyrics in the session or sheet music. No previous musical experience is required. There is no audition.
These are the 5 values at the heart of Technicolour — have a think whether these match you as a person…
* LOVE musicals — seriously, you need to love musicals to be in this choir!
* Keep it positive — no dramas, no egos
* Be in the room where it happens — get present and focus in sessions
* Go the distance — do everything in your power to make our performances EPIC!
* You will be found — everyone will support everyone
I'll give full details about the choir, it's dates, it's payment options, gigs, resources, socials in the taster sessions however for those who want a few headlines before thinking about tasters, here you go…
* There will be 3 terms per year. Each one last 12 weeks.
* Sessions will be held in the Common Room at Chapter Arts Centre on Wednesday evenings (19:30 — 21:00)
* Membership for 1 term is £96 (or you can pay monthly as an easy payment option)
Hi — I'm Patrick Steed. I'm so excited to be launching TECHNICOLOUR. Just to give you a bit of background about me — I've been leading choirs and creating epic vocal arrangements for the past decade. I worked with the amazing Sing & Inspire (and inspireMe) for 8 years as a choir leader, musical architect and champion of excellence and now I'm a freelance musician. I'm the composer & lyricist for the musical Stalking John Barrowman and resident composer for Hello Cabaret. TECHNICOLOUR is about bringing together everything I love — musicals, epic harmonies, chart music, wonderful people, great energy and loads of glitter! I'd love to welcome you to a taster session so book your place now!!!
