I have been a member of Local Vocals for eighteen months and I can’t praise it enough. I have always loved music but have always had a real complex about singing except alone in my car! The relaxed and totally non-threatening atmosphere created by Celia, plus the fun and laughter we all share, have allowed me to experience, for the first time, the real joy of communal singing. It is very satisfying when we have learnt our parts – Celia is so encouraging and patient – and then it all comes together in three or four part harmony and we sound wonderful! It gives me such a buzz when we are singing our hearts out and I leave every week with a feeling of warmth and wellbeing which stays with me long after the class is over. Thank you Celia.
