If you would like to join the choir...
Amika is open to all comers - regardless of their singing experience or level of musical knowledge. All you need is lots of enthusiasm and the desire to sing!
We meet for rehearsals weekly during school term time at Woodgate Residents' Association
Woodgate Resource Centre
LE3 5GE, on Saturdays, between 14:00 and 16:00
In these rehearsal sessions we sing old favourites and learn new songs by ear; no previous knowledge of music is necessary. We provided excellent teaching tracks from which you can learn if you want to catch up with the choir repertoire. A fee is charged for each rehearsal, payable in advance per half term of 6 weeks, £45, or if necessary, weekly at a higher rate of £8. If this creates a problem don't be afraid to ask for alternative arrangements with the choir committee. Please e-mail by clicking on "Join us".
If you like to perform in public...
Pandemic allowing, we aim to take part in a full concert each year and in 2009 there were a number of shorter appearances including a set at DeMontfort Hall for the for the reception following the unveiling of the new statue of Ghandi in Belgrave and as part of the choir singing the opening song for the Special Olympics in Leicester. In 2012 we acted as backing choir for 4 of the songs in the Bob Marley Tribute "Catch as Fire" and in pre-pandemic times we have been invited to join "Festival of Choirs" at Curve. If you don't want to perform in public that's fine as well - the decision is yours.
I want to join, what should I do?
We look forward to meeting you...
