I am Kari, your choir director.
I run several choirs including my community choir (which has just returned to in-person singing) and other large virtual choirs. I was a primary school teacher in a previous life and have been running successful choirs for 9 years. It is my passion, my calling and my absolute pleasure.
I believe we all feel a bit better when we sing and that this is amplified massively when we sing together. Even though we sing online on mute, there is still and energy created and a sense of togetherness which is quite special. There’s no need to read music or to have had any previous choir experience – just come along and let yourself go!
How Your Choir Works
We meet via zoom – details of how to access will be shared when you sign up. Each session is designed to be fun, stress-free and provide a pocket of joy to everyone. I choose songs from across the decades which you will know and love (or learn to love!). Sometimes there are many parts, sometimes just a few but we’ll be taking things at your pace so as not to leave anyone behind.
I hope you enjoy singing together with me! Let our singing journey begin……
This website has all the lyrics as well as audio files for teaching harmony parts. I will go through these during rehearsals but they will be available for anyone who wants another listen later. Missed a rehearsal? If you’d like to catch up, full rehearsal audio recordings will be available on this website too. You can do as much or a little as you like in between sessions. Going to be late to rehearsal? Totally fine – just come along when you can. Everyone arrives on mute so it won’t disturb us at all. I’d rather people came later than missed out.
To really feel the sense of singing together, we will be creating some virtual recordings. Guidance on how to do this is available on this website too. Once we have learned a song thoroughly, each part will have a you tube conducting video created for you to follow as you record into your phones – I’ll go through it all with you. We’d love as many people involved as possible purely to share the joy of being part of the recording. There is really no pressure!
