About the Choir

Wavelength A Cappella started in early 2016 as a group of  friends who had sung together in the past. We couldn't find a  Bournemouth or Poole based choir or vocal group that satisfied all of our musical needs, so we  decided to start one.

We are all women, with the exception of our musical director, and enjoy the friendship and support of our fellow singers. We are not experts, most of us don't read music but we do try very hard to sing well.

The choir is 'owned' by the singers, it's not a commercial enterprise and no one gets paid, our subs (about £5 per week) go on music and vocal/performance coaching.

We don't yet know how this group will develop but we do know that we really enjoy challenging ourselves in a mutually supportive, friendly environment and making great music. Why not come and meet us?

What a performance!

The minute you walk through the door to the choir rehearsal is when all else is forgotten. All that matters is: what note should I sing, am I on time, are the words right? All the washing and ironing and unwashed dishes are left behind and it’s on to pushing myself into the music rather than pushing a hoover around!

 

There is nowhere else that I could get the satisfaction of a job well done, with a group of great people and have fun and laughter at the same time. It’s the best evening of the week.

Being a mother of two young children, life can get pretty hectic. But somehow, when I sing with Wavelength, I stop thinking about 'motherhood' (what's for dinner, did I do the laundry...) and really go back to being me, the me pre-children. It's a place to unwind, have a giggle, and sing, I couldn't be without it now.

Being part of Wavelength has given me so much.  I feel more confident, energetic and happy.  Everyone is so friendly and supportive.  My favourite t-shirt has a quote "I do not need therapy, I sing in a choir"

 

I just feel so much better when I sing and do my very best not to miss a Tuesday evening. Wavelength is such a great bunch of people - they really are my singing family. I completely agree with the sentiment on Barbara's t-shirt!

When we're not singing we're probably eating cake.

I have always wanted to sing and perform and, now, later in life I am doing it and loving it. Singing harmony is the best feeling.

 

Love it - simples!!

 

Singing is the best therapy there is to lift your mood, the fellowship is great, and there is nothing quite like that feeling of satisfaction when the harmonies all come together.
