"In the Mix"
Weekly Singing and Social group is moving from
Worcester Park, Surrey to
Charing Parish Hall, Station Road, Charing, Ashford TN27 OJA
Established in 2012
In 2012, Sheila launched “In the Mix” singing group in Cheam, Surrey and from Wednesday 21 July, 2021 our new group will be at:
Charing Parish Hall, every Wednesday 2pm - 4pm.
First session 21st July 2021 - government guidelines permitting.
£6.50 on the door - including tea/coffee and home-made cakes.
A relaxed weekly sing-along and social with local pro singer/vocal coach Sheila Daniels.
No booking required, no expectation to sing well or learn anything!
A general love of music is all you need.
Together we sit and sing along to lyrics projected onto a screen and share some trivia about each song. There is a new selection of songs every week, mostly from the 1920s through to the 1970s, covering jazz, swing, Rat Pack, Rock & Roll, Hollywood films and West End musicals, big bands, pop and more.
It’s great fun and it’s good for you too!
No need to book or commit .... or sing well or learn anything! so why not give it a try?
“I have spent many years singing with a band at weddings and events and my repertoire covers many well known songs from the 1930s to the 1970s, so back in 2012 I thought it would be fun to sing these songs with others who loved them as much as I did – in a relaxed setting without pressure, expectation or commitment. I decided to set up the group because I felt there must be people who would like to sing together socially without having to join a choir or amateur dramatics group, but instead something more like a traditional sing along .
We sing everything and anything from the 1920s through to the 1970s and occasionally before and after! What we have in common is a general love of great music from many genres – and an open mind to have a go even if I throw in Chuck Berry when they’d rather sing Matt Monro – or vice versa. Above all, singing should be fun and it should make you feel good just to set your voice free, it doesn’t matter what you sound like – and to be honest the more you mentally and physically relax about it the better it will be, that's a fact :)
There is much in the media about the health benefits of singing, either for yourself or in a group, including lowering blood pressure, relieving stress and anxiety, boosting the immune system, improving lung function and it is the best kind of anti-depressant.
The one thing we share at “In the Mix”, however, is that we all leave feeling better for singing
and sharing our love of music" ~ Sheila Daniels
