Sing It Big!
The Sing It Big and Singitbig Youth choirs are run by Debbie and Karen who are colleagues and friends who have collaborated together on many occasions and share the same philosophy about music and attitudes to teaching
We are vocalists, performers, pianists and arrangers who have a fresh and fun approach to ensemble singing.
“There is no choir experience like this currently in the area and we have some wonderful vocal talent here. There is no audition process and you don’t need to be an experienced singer to join!”
– Karen & Debbie
With our experience and encouragement we will be enthusing singers with our fantastic bespoke arrangements (designed especially for our choirs), developing vocal skills which will improve confidence and well being, culminating in regular performance at concerts and events.
Why not come along to a rehearsal (see Schedule) and and see for yourself!
Bring a friend….or two!
