Call out for enthusiastic singers to join Wimbledon choir

A touch of the West End is coming to Wimbledon thanks to a singing coach to the stars, who is setting up a musical theatre choir for adults.

Rachel Lynes (pictured), who spent ten years performing lead roles in London’s West End, has put the call out for enthusiastic singers to join the new choir.

Ms Lynes, who moved to Wimbledon Park in 2013, said the choir is open to keen singers who love musical theatre, and want the chance to work with a professional voice coach whilst enjoying “belting out showtunes”.

She said: “The singers will learn to get the most from their voice.

We will cover breathing, resonance, posture and range and we are looking for people who are really enthusiastic about musical theatre.”

“Singing is so good for mental health, we all benefit from singing and from the social aspect of singing together.

People have told me singing is the best part of their week, and that it relieves stress.

I know what joy singing can bring and I want to enable as many people as possible to experience that joy.”

The choir will launch on January 17 at Wimbledon Park Hall, and after that the choir will meet weekly.

The choir will be run by Ms Lynes and Tim Whiting, Senior head of vocals at the drama school, ArtsEd.
