Jackdaws Songbirds by Alan Denison (Frome Wessex Camera Club) at Frome Festival 2019
Jackdaws Songbirds are a friendly, informal singing group for adults (But you are most welcome to bring your babies, Pre-schoolers and toddlers to the Tuesday session!)
We meet weekly during term time to sing together in a relaxed environment. There are no auditions, and no previous singing or music experience is required! Songs are taught by ear. Music notation is available to those who read, but reading isn’t necessary. Our aim is to enjoy singing together in harmony and to explore different types of music: traditional, modern and world.
The group meets on Tuesdays from 1.30pm – 2.45pm at St Catharine’s church hall, Park Road, Frome.
We sing for an hour, and provide toys for the toddlers to play with. We don’t expect pre-schoolers to be quiet, and we don’t expect full attention from parents! In a typical session, children may play on their own for a bit, require some attention for a bit, and may even listen in now and then. At 2.30pm the toys are cleared away and we sing a few songs with the children.
There is also an evening group on Wednesdays from 7.40pm – 9.10pm.
This is very similar to the afternoon group, minus the babies and toddlers. This group meets at St John’s school, Christchurch Street East. All ages from 16 years are welcome.
Songbirds groups have paused, due to the pandemic, but we can put you on the contact list.
For the Tuesday group, there is a suggested donation of £5 for each session you attend, or £4 per session when paying for a half term block. Wednesday group fees are paid as a half term block, at a rate of £4 per session.
