Kibworth Ladies Choir
After our taster sessions in January, we have had lots more ladies join us. We now have a membership of nearly 40 which is great!
For this month’s article, we thought it would be fun to interview a couple of our members who joined us last year. Here’s what Anita and Kully said.
How did you hear about KLC?
Kully – “It was when I bumped into my neighbour, Anita, already a KLC member, that I joined when she took me to a session”.
Anita – “I joined through recommendation by a friend who is currently a member of KLC”.
What made you join the choir?
Kully -I enjoyed singing at school so when my neighbour mentioned she was going, I jumped at the chance.
Anita – My son sings, and he was my inspiration!
Which section of the choir do you sing with?
Kully – Mezzo
Anita – I started with mezzo then moved to sopranos once establishing my vocal range.
Have you ever sung in a choir or with a group before?
Kully – Have only sung at school.
Anita – Never!
What’s your favourite song you’ve sung from KLC repertoire to date?
Kully – ‘One Day like this’-Elbow
Anita – ‘Dublin’, The Fury’s
What has been your KLC highlight so far?
Kully – Our October concert. A fantastic opportunity to sing in a beautiful church with great acoustics whilst raising funds for charity
Anita – Singing at the KLC 10 year anniversary concert last year. Learning 12 new songs, some with quite complex arrangements. All sounding in beautiful harmony.
What’s the best thing about being a member of KLC?
Kully -The best things about being a member of KLC is the singing, the ladies and the pub. The singing uplifts me, the ladies support me and the pub quenches my thirst!
Anita – The KLC are very organised , welcoming, offer great support in making you feel at ease to sing.
What are you looking forward to doing with KLC this year?
Kully – The next concert and KLC social events!
Anita – Singing songs from movies and musicals.
Would you recommend joining KLC and why?
Anita – Yes absolutely! Having had no previous singing experience, theres a real joy in giving it a go and relishing a fresh experience. I’ve really enjoyed singing at events, like weddings and Christmas.
If you could sum up KLC in three words what would they be?
Kully – Enjoyable, Fun and Friendly!
Anita – Friendship, de-stress and Joy!
Great feedback from two of our lovely ladies! They talked about our forthcoming concert.
So save the date – Saturday 25 November will be our KLC Concert – A Night at the Movies!
