WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY
"I joined ICC in the last year and absolutely LOVE it. A good sing provides a release of tensions. The atmosphere is friendly but everyone gives it their all. You leave feeling exhilarated and happy."
"I wasn’t sure about joining a choir, but Inspire has exceeded my expectations. I find the songs uplifting and enjoy singing with the choir. We are a friendly group who enjoy singing for the joy of it and I look forward to each session."
"I enjoy the freedom of singing a capella – a style I have not tried before. This freedom extends to enjoying the company of a lovely group of people with a similar interest."
"I have been a member of the choir for approx. 2 years and have found it to be a welcoming, friendly group for all abilities. We have achieved over time, a lovely harmonious sound, which is a great pleasure to participate in. We have performed in public on a number of occasions and have joined other choirs for larger performances. We have been in the recording studio to record the background music for a theatre production of Nosferatu. I feel I have achieved a great deal and have gained in confidence and pleasure."
"When I joined the choir in January I felt a little nervous as I walked in. I hadn’t sung in a choir since I was at school! However, everyone was very friendly and welcoming, and I really enjoyed singing with others. I now find myself really looking forward to my “choir Saturdays”."
"I joined after the summer as I love a wide range of music and enjoy singing. I was immediately made to feel welcome and look forward to each choir practice. Alyss our leader is very encouraging and inspirational."

"Alyss our musical dynamo has brought out the joy of song in all of us."
"I enjoyed the choir so much my mum decided to come along and now we have some quality time together on a Saturday. By the time the rehearsal has finished we drive home and sing along as we go. For a refresher the songs are on the website to listen to at your heart’s content and we have a paper copy to refer to if we are lost for words!"
