The 12 Week Concert Programme
The 12 Week Concert Programme takes a group of colleagues and turns them into a choir in is a similar format to Gareth Malone's Sing While You Work on BBC2.
Over 12 weeks we will rehearse once a week for an hour, at lunchtime or immediately before or after work, culminating in a performance in front of friends and colleagues: a fantastic way to end your conference, a dynamic addition to an office party or simply an occasion in itself.
What the Programme Includes
A Tailor-Made Programme
We create a bespoke programme just for your business. We will meet with you to discuss how to maximise the benefits of your workplace choir, including how to integrate the performance into your conference or event. We choose and arrange songs to get the best experience for singers. We often choose songs that have a connection with your business, so a company in the automotive industry might sing the The Beatles' Drive my Car while a charity might sing You'll Never Walk Alone or for a light-hearted approach to a fund-raising event what about Money, Money, Money!
Help Recruiting Singers
We host a fun taster workshop open to all. Your staff can find out more and 'have a go' without having to commit. At the end of the session all particupants are invited to sign up as members of your new choir. We tend to find the sign-up rate is over 75%.
We will rehearse and support singers over ten weeks through weekly rehearsals at lunchtime or before and after work. Rehearsals are fun and engaging for the singers - an opportunity for them to meet new colleagues and relax in each other's company no matter what their role is in your organisation.
We provide downloadable practice music custom-made for each part in your choir. These can be added to any mp3 player or smartphone. We also have a forum dedicated to your choir. The forum allows singers to share their progress with each other and raise any questions they have with their choir leader.
Creating a Performance
The Concert Programme wouldn't be complete without a performance to show off the results of all your hard work. We can provide technical and creative support to make sure the performance is a huge success, including sound and lighting equipment. We can even theme the production with support from our resident Events Designer. If you do not require technical services we can liaise with your own or external technical staff to integrate the performance smoothly into your event. We are also able to record and film the performance professionally to provide a lasting legacy whether it's for YouTube or internal company use.
A Long-Lasting Positive Effect
At the end of the programme, we will debrief you and the singers on what was learned during our time together, identify positive changes that have been made within the group and signpost further opportunities to maximise long-term benefits to your organisation. We will also conduct a survey to provide stakeholders with measurable outcomes.
Do you need to have singing experience?
Absolutely not. The majority of singers we have worked with have had no previous singing experience... but they are often surprised by what a great sound they produce!
