Following the successful end to the Spring term with vocal workshops, 2018 was quite a year for the individual vocal students of iwant2sing, the Me-Time Pop Choir and collectively the lot of them as they sparkled their way through fantastic performances at this year’s Summer Singer’s Showcase. Many people, particularly choir members took to the stage as soloists for the first time, others built their confidence on last year’s debut and a few seasoned performers and longtime students dazzled the audience with their outstanding performance and vocal abilities. As their vocal coach and biggest fan I think I loved most seeing such an array of singers, abilities and experience all taking to the stage with full support and appreciation of one another – it was a wonderful night. We were again privileged to have some of London’s best session musicians in the house band and performers and audience alike really let their hair down for the party-set at the end of the night, lead by myself and the band. I already can’t wait for this year’s event. See the story of the night in pictures below.
The Autumn/Winter term 2018 of MTPC hit it off with an influx of new faces and some fantastic songs to be learned in prep for performances during the Christmas season. All 5 performances we were booked for were very different and special in their own way.
Highlights were singing at Dalemead Residential Home and seeing some of the lovely residents with dementia responding to our singing and joining in, helping raise cash for Care International singing in Paddington Station, and performing up on the balcony in Ealing’s new restaurant, ‘No:17’, while the Christmas Tree lights in Elizabeth Square were turned on. We also had so much fun singing for Light up the Lane, Pitshanger Lane’s Christmas lights event and at St Paul’s Church’s Pub Carols event. See pictures below.
Bring it on 2019! - This year holds even more exciting opportunities.

The ME TIME POP CHOIR Spring term 2019 will culminate in a fun, interactive vocal workshop with Nicki Currie of Milton Keynes Women’s Choir. As well as offering her vocal and choir leading skills to us, this will be a chance to meet Nicki ahead of the next exciting event planned for the choir in June – our first ever choir residential. The Big Sing weekend sees us collaborating with Nicki’s Milton Keynes Women’s Choir and will be held in the last week of June at Kings Park Conference Centre in Northampton (see E-flyer below). We are literally so excited about this weekend that is going to unleash a whole heap of fun, song and social time. Although we’ll be collecting deposits on 15th February, late comers are welcome, so do get in touch if you are interested in attending the residential at a later date.
