March Can’t Sing Choir was formed in September 2016 with a grant from the Healthy Fenland Fund. A voluntary committee was formalised in February 2017 to manage that funding since then. We remain a not-for-profit community organisation that meets every Wednesday in a 48-week year, with some exceptions due to weather, pandemics (!) and other unforeseen happenings. We meet at 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start, singing through to 8.30pm with a break half-way for conversation and refreshments. We have more than forty singers in the choir, with a revolving group of about thirty who come each week when they can fit choir around other personal activities.
We have moved recently, now to meet at St Peter’s Church Hall, 54 High Street, March, PE15 9JR (next door to the Spice Bank, and opposite March Museum).
We sing for the fun of it, and for the health-giving benefits both physical and mental. We gain improvements in self-confidence, friendship and companionship with the uplifting warmth of laughter along the way. There are no auditions, no need to read music, nor be a particularly good singer either. Just turn up, be a tryer, and you’ll be fine. As confidence grows, we offer the chance to sing with us in public, the choir being frequent contributors to external events in the town, such as St George’s Day Fayre, and the March Christmas Market. We have also sung in a number of local Care Homes although of late, this activity has been stifled by Covid-19 regulations.
There is no membership fee, no performance fee, simply a pay-as-you-go subscription of £4.00 per week, cash at the door.
