Nottingham’s Tuneless Choir is all about singing like no-one is listening.
Nottingham City Tuneless Choir is preparing for a special performance at Light Night and wants everyone to join in.
The performance on Old Market Square will feature songs from The Great British Songbook.
The first Tuneless Choir was set up three years ago in West Bridgford and now there are choirs in Beeston and Nottingham city.
“”We tried it as a pilot to see what happens and we got 60 people turn up to the first one.”
Bernie Bracha, Leader of Tuneless Choir
Manager Nadine Cooper said: “I was told at school to stop singing. The music teacher put his hand on my arm and said please stop singing you are spoiling it for everyone else.
“We set up in West Bridgford and very quickly people kept asking if they could do it so we made it into a franchise, now there is about 30 around the country.”
There is also plans to expand the choirs to other regions across the East Midlands.
Choir leader Bernie Bracha was unsure if the choir was going to be a success.
“We tried it as a pilot to see what happens and we got 60 people turn up to the first one.”
The choir sing every Wednesday lunch time in one of the halls at St Andrew’s Church, Chaucer Street.
The charge for each session is £5, payable in cash or by card at the door. No booking required.
