Pop up choir Sing for Life is coming to Stamford Arts Centre

You Raise Me up, Chattenooga Choo-Choo and I Can See Clearly Now are just some of the numbers that will be belted out by a pop up choir set to make their Stamford debut.

Sing for Life, a 10-week women’s choral project, will be performing at the Stamford Arts Centre on July 13.

The choir, which has more than 90 members, will be performing as part of the Peterborough Voices’ Summer concert.

Claire Hailey, marketing manager for organisers Peterborough Sings, said: “We can’t wait for the concert in Stamford.

“We’ve got a brilliant choir ready to perform.

“Sing for Life is a fantastic project aimed at all women and you don’t have to have sung before.

“Age, social background or previous experience is all inrelevant.

“It’s also for women who want to join a choir but don’t have the time to commit to one fully.

“It’s a great way to socialise and meet other people.”

The Sing for Life choir, sponsored by Hunt and Coombs Solicitors is directed by William Prideaux.

Other music to be performed will include Wind Beneath My Wings, From Russia With Love, Laudate Dominum by Mozart and Ave Marie by Saint-Saens.

Sarah Bailey, from Stamford, who will be performing with the choir and works for the NHS, said: “I joined Sing for Life as I love to sing.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the experience so far.

“I’ve met some great people and learnt so much to improve my singing.

“I’m nervous but excited about the big performance - we’re a great team with a fantastic director and I feel really privileged to be part of it.”

Sue Cunnington, another Sing for Life member from Stamford, said: “I jumped at the chance to join Sing for Life.

“Singing is really energising and truly lifts your spirits.

“The project is a fantastic way to meet new people and have loads of fun at the same time, as well as raising funds for such as good causes such as Sue Ryder."

The concert on July 13 at the Stamford Arts Centre starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £12 for adults and £10 for concessions.

They can be purchased from www.stamfordartscentre.com or by calling 01780 763 203.
