The Choir Workshop – Team Building Singing Workshop | London | UK

This unique team building workshop transforms your employees and friends into a pop and rock choir! You have seen it happen on the TV and now it is your chance to experience becoming a pop and rock choir. This singing workshop is perfect for corporate entertainment and team building. They can also organise for the participants to perform a flash mob singing performance. This workshop has taught thousands of people to sing and has a successful track record of getting even the most reticent and out of tune people to sound fantastic in pop rock choirs around the country.

Their approach is upbeat, highly motivational and interactive. No previous experience is required and you don’t need to be able to read music, hold a tune or keep rhythm. The terrified and tone-deaf are welcome! There’s no audition and you won’t be put on the spot. The emphasis is on fun, lifting our spirits and singing our hearts out, for the love of it!

They will be singing Pop, Rock, Motown, Gospel and world music arrangements of contemporary music styles and like a show choir. They use simple choreography to bring extra energy and impact to your performance -they’re talking lifting arms and clapping rather than high kicks and spins though, so don’t worry!

This is great as a team building event, special party, celebration or for a larger event to bring delegates together in a unique, moving and challenging way. Their very expert and humorous choir leaders will take your delegates (any number from 20 delegates upwards is a choir) through a brief vocal training warm up (5 minutes max) and then get your delegates to sing though specially prepared arrangements of well-known easy to learn songs.

Once they feel you have the basics they will teach you a few simple harmony parts and depending on the time available they might ask for a brief vocal solo from a more confident member of your new choir like the MD for example! They put the whole thing together in a grand finale and hey presto! You are the performers, the performance and the audience all wrapped up into one.

A before and after video story of the day is also a great gift to give your delegates as a memento.  For large companies with multiple branches – any variation on the theme of this fun project could be worked out in advance with their choir leaders to rehearse delegates from different branches and bring them together for a huge ‘big sing’ major event. Up to several thousand delegates can become a choir singing songs having rehearsed the parts at their branch rehearsal in advance.

Options Available:

– A three hour session

– A one day event

– A weekend event

– A series of three rehearsals of 1.15 hours for special event

– A term of ten rehearsals of 1.15 hours for special event

Technical Specification:

The Choir Workshop provides:

– Choir arrangements

– Backing tracks and MP3 players

– Specially prepared master copies of lyric sheets

– Downloads of songs and harmony parts
– Promotional materials publicity suggestions
The client will need to provide:

– Copies of the required number of lyric sheets

– Overhead projector and operator if required

For up to 100 delegates almost any large space can work providing there is adequate seating and that the acoustics are not either too bright (like in bathroom with echoing hard surfaces) or too dead (like in a thick carpeted and curtained room). Conference rooms, class room, or small theatres will usually suffice. For a ½ day event or longer depending on numbers and how we structure your event you may want extra anterooms for rehearsing the separate harmony groups before bringing everyone together. This helps builds up anticipation for the grand finale.
