Singing day for blokes only at the Waterfront

You’ve heard of the Military Wives choir, and various workplace and business and community groups.

Yes, singing can be fun.

Now there is a chance for local men to give it a go, and exercise their lulngs, in a special day of manly singing at St Peter’s By The Waterfront arts centre.

Chris Rowbury (Suffolk’s answer to Gareth Malone)) will be running an entire day of singing exclusively for men on Saturday February 28 in Ipswich.

Fancy taking up a new hobby? Always wanted to sing, but never got around to it? Want to impress the missus? Bored with the bass line? Now’s your chance!

Come and experience the buzz of singing with a bunch of like-minded blokes. Learn to sing and get some vocal training in a safe, fun, relaxed and non-threatening way. Sample the delights of singing together – Chris will have you making beautiful music in a matter of minutes!

Centre manager Andrew Mayhew said: “It doesn’t matter if you’ve never sung before or if you haven’t sung since you were in the school choir or if you’re already in a choir now. Absolutely no musical or singing experience is necessary as all songs will be taught by ear.

“This is a day for men who don’t like choirs, blokes with manly voices, chaps who love music, gents who like a challenge and guys who want to have fun. All in the safety of our exclusive man space – no audience, no auditions, no solos, no women.

“Do please spread the word. Wives and girlfriends: give your chap a gentle nudge off the sofa and let him know how proud you’ll be if he comes.”

Chris Rowbury has 30 years’ experience as a patient, charismatic teacher with a relaxed style laced with plenty of humour. He regularly

runs singing days in Suffolk and beyond as well as running The OK Chorale, Woodbridge’s community choir and the twice a year Singing

Safari in Ipswich.
