March Can’t Sing Choir formed in September 2016 with a grant from the Healthy Fenland Fund. A voluntary committee formalised in February 2017 to manage our activities and funding since then. We remain a not-for-profit community group that meets every Wednesday in a 46-week year, with some exceptions.
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 choir fits around other personal activities.
St Peter's Church - March
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. We have an age range of 18 - 99+. There are no auditions, no need to read music, nor be a particularly good singer. Just turn up, be a tryer, and you’ll be fine. We provide the words, you just have to sing along. 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 also sing in a number of local Care Homes by popular request.
If you have a health condition or impairment for which you need a carer, you are welcome. Please note the carer must stay with you. To be clear, we are not a specialist dementia choir, but we help where we can. More information on dementia support is available on the internet, for example at: https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/
