Join us at our big event of the year, our BIG GIG AND QUIZ
Wednesday 15th May, 8pm at Effra Social, Brixton.
Proceeds towards running Sing For PND groups with local family support charity, Little Village.
We are very excited about what promises to be a fabulous feast of vocal music, followed by Dave’s entertaining and enlightening Pub Quiz. This year we are especially excited to have guest soloist, Tracey Campbell joining us. Ruth sang under Tracey’s Gospel-baton in Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir and Tracey continues to be a mainstay of the Gospel scene, as well as a soloist with the internationally acclaimed Kingdom Choir, who sang for Megan and Harry’s wedding.
About Pram Chorus...
Pram Chorus is a fun, friendly, non-auditioned community choir with groups in Streatham, Brixton, Beckenham, Tooting and Balham, London and further afield in Sheffield, UK. It's for mums, dads, grandparents, expectant mothers, nannies and anyone else looking after small people - although similarly, you don't have to have a mini-chaperone. Everyone is welcome! It's about YOU doing something creative and fun for yourself, where your little one is also welcome (in all their vocal glory!) So bring yourself, your bumps and babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers and come to sing a huge variety of songs - no nursery rhymes.
You don't need to have any singing experience or expertise. The point is to come along and have some fun! Songs are taught by ear, without sheet-music, so you can have your hands free to hold, feed, jiggle, dance your little ones, as well as listening and responding to the other singers. You will leave feeling energised and uplifted, with a funky ear-worm and a spring in your step.
Pram Chorus is more than a choir - it's a community, where everyone is welcomed and supported in a non-judgemental way. We take it in turns to bring cake/biscuits to share afterwards and strong friendships are often formed. The experience of becoming a parent can be a lonely one as you are thrust into a brave new world of sleepless nights and being at the mercy of a tiny one's needs, so having a friendly, non-judgemental place to go, where you don't even have to make small talk, can be a lifesaver.
Pram Chorus is the dream-child of experienced choir director, singer and mum, Ruth Routledge. Aside from getting you to make sounds you’ve never even dreamed of, Ruth is supportive and understanding of your needs and creates a warm, welcoming place to come together. You don't need to have any singing experience or talent, nor do you have to make small talk or discuss the intricacies of your baby's feeding/pooing-habits (although of course you can) - you can just rock up and sing!
