Liverpool’s VOICEPOP! Choir Launch New Indie Rock Music Sessions Every Thursday Starting 26th July 2018 at Camp & Furnace. Learn to sing anthems from the likes of Elbow/Foo Fighters/Jimmy Eat World/Radiohead with a member of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir
Involved in the running of local choirs in the Waterloo area of Liverpool for several years, local vocal group VOICEPOP! Choir are pleased to announce they will launch a special indie rock music series of their popular group singing sessions.
The sessions will be held weekly at 7.30-9.00pm on Thursdays, beginning 26th July 2018 in the Gold Room at Camp & Furnace located in the Baltic Triangle area of the city centre, with the first session completely FREE to anyone wishing to attend. Follow up sessions will be at a cost of £6 per week.
Geared towards engaging with people who might otherwise be put off by the more traditional choir set up and playlist selection, the VOICEPOP! Indie Rock Choir is a fantastic opportunity for people to learn how to sing some of their favourite indie rock anthems with guidance from a member of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir, as well as meeting new people and discovering the fun of group singing together.
VOICEPOP! Choir is the brainchild of Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir member Tim Taylor and began in June 2014 with simple aims; to make choir, group singing and performance accessible to all.
“For me, choir involves two of my biggest passions; music and people,” explains choir leader Taylor of his passion for singing.
“I started choir because I love to sing. I wanted to share my passion for music, and I wanted to share the excitement of group singing and performance with those who otherwise may not get the chance. For me, singing makes me feel content, it gives me the chance to personally, recreate what is great about a song and convey that to the listener.”
The group follows on from Taylor’s work with Liverpool Inspirational Voices, a choir made up of visually impaired adults, one of only two choirs specifically for visually impaired people in the country. VOICEPOP! sing simple choral arrangements of popular songs. People can learn by ear and there are no auditions. The founding group, based in Waterloo, currently has 30 members.
