About Sing with Us
You don't have to be a good singer...every voice counts
Sing with Us choirs are fun, uplifting and friendly, and are open to anyone affected by cancer whether you're a patient, survivor, carer or someone who has been bereaved through cancer. You don't need to read music or be a great singer to join - every voice counts. Our Tenovus Cancer Care choir leaders are all professional musicians who work as part of our Cancer Support Team and we are supported by our lovely volunteers who make sure all our new members feel welcome. Get involved
If you think you might be interested in singing with us, please register your interest either
via this form on our website, or by calling our free Support Line on 0808 808 1010 (open 365 days a year). We recommend you do this before coming along to a rehearsal.
Your local choir leader will then get in touch by e-mail or phone, whichever you prefer, to have a chat to you about the choir and let you know how it all works. We’ll invite you to join us at one of our monthly taster sessions, so you can have a go and see for yourself what it’s like to be in a Sing with Us choir.
What our rehearsals are like
First and foremost you'll hopefully have a lot of fun! You’ll feel energised and excited by our uplifting style of running choirs, with lots of laughing! We also want you to feel really satisfied with the music you learn, so we’ll spend as much time you need working through the music – don’t worry, we don’t use scores and all the songs we choose are popular songs from the 1960s to the 2010s so you’ll always have a good starting point.
And of course the choirs are there to support you, so there is a big focus on all of us working together to make a lovely sound as well as helping each other to cope with the effects of cancer treatment or losing a loved one. Whether you need a friendly ear or you just want to forget your troubles for a while, you’ll find it at a Sing with Us rehearsal.
The Sing with Us choirs are free to join but any
contribution to help keep them running is gratefully received, as we get no external funding and rely on donations. Some choir members choose to do this through Direct Debit which you can set up online or ask your Choir Leader for a form at rehearsals. If you'd prefer you can give via a weekly cash donation, whichever suits you best. If you feel unable to contribute for any reason, that’s absolutely fine and in no way affects your choir membership.
