Tamarisk is a small, supportive and very friendly choir.
We rehearse once a week on Thursdays 1.45 - 2.45pm at Queen Street Community Centre in Branston, Burton-on-Trent.
Our members have an interest in singing but that’s all. Most can’t read music and no-one had to audition to join. However we manage to sing a large repertoire of songs in close three-part harmony and from memory. Many people – audience members and choir members – are amazed at we manage to achieve with one rehearsal a week. You might be too!
All our songs are pitched lower than most choir music making them easier to sing and making it easier to achieve a natural sounding tone.
All music is provided – words and notes. A cd can also be provided with your part on it.
Tamarisk is a parents’ choir and membership is open to anyone who is a parent of a school-age child - primary or secondary - or younger. You don’t have to bring your children to rehearsals but you are welcome to. Many of our children have started school but we want to encourage parents with pre-school children as this was the reason we started Tamarisk.
If you are a parent of a pre-school child membership is completely free (even if you don’t bring your child to rehearsals). If all your children are at school there is an annual sub of £25 to cover hiring the room where we rehearse. This works out at less than 50 pence a week. You can come as many times as you like before deciding whether to join or not.
If you are interested in joining Tamarisk but cannot make daytime rehearsals we also rehearse fortnightly on a Wednesday evening.
