the choir that's not like a choir
Soul Song Brisbane started life as the West End Social Singers - an experimental 6 week Christmas pop-up in late 2018.
We had so much fun that we decided not to let it go and Soul Song Brisbane was formed in Janunary 2019.
Since then, Soul Song Brisbane has become a genuine community as well as a fun and funky space for people of all musical experience to sing together.
THE REHEARSAL EXPERIENCE
Soul Song Brisbane rehearses pretty much every Wednesday, although we do take the odd week off during school holidays so please check the calendar below to make sure there's a rehearsal on before you come along.
New members are welcome at any time and your first rehearsal is free so you can check us out without obligation. You don't have to let us know you're coming but you can give Jaq a call first on 0412 255587 if it will help with the first rehearsal nerves!
We start singing at 6.30pm but someone is normally at the hall from 6.00pm so you are welcome to come in early and say hi before the rush. We finish at 8.30pm and normally head for one of the pubs next door to wind down.
Rehearsals are primarily about working on repertoire and building vocal technique but we try to mix up rehearsals each week to keep them interesting and we also work a lot in smaller sections to help songs progress faster.
Those who come the most often get the most out of Soul Song but there is no expectation for people to come every single week and we have lots of resources available for those who miss a week or a few to help them catch up if they want to. You'll get more information on this when you join.
We will give you a folder and all the lyrics you need once you've signed up. Then each week you come, you just need to bring some water, a highlighter, pen or pencil, your folder and reading glasses if you're of that kind of age!
Soul Song Brisbane rehearses on Wednedsays at the Ahepa Hall, 128 Boundary Street, West End and your first rehearsal is free so you can come along and check us out without obligation! (Please note that you will be required to fill in our COVID-19 tracing form on arrival.)
