Do you love to sing ? Come and join Lisa and friends on Wednesday lunchtimes at 12.15pm. We meet up in the Visitor Centre and on nice days we sing outside in the outdoor theatre – our backdrop being a stunning view of the lakes. If the weather is inclement, we have an indoor space to use, so we are able to meet up and enjoy singing all year round.
What better way to get over the midweek hump day than come and sing!

A typical SAS session will start with a physical (suitable for all) and vocal warm up which prepares us to sing. We then have a mix of rounds and harmony songs which we spend a term learning, mainly taught by ear. We finish off a session with a good old sing song along to some more popular well-known songs. Over the year we sing a variety of genres from folk to rock, gospel to chants, and old time to up-to-date pop.
We aim to stretch the members teaching new vocal skills and building on their vocal talent. This is done in a fun, relaxed way.
