SingSeptember is a national campaign taking place in September 2020.

This initiative is designed to help spread the word about Barbershop Singing in Britain. It will be run throughout the month of September and the BABS Marketing Department will run a nationwide campaign. There will be something planned on every day of September.

The BABS Board of Directors are hoping every club will participate in this campaign in any way they can, no matter how big or small.

SingSeptember can help your club to:

  • Find new members
  • Grow your audiences
  • Encourage new talent
  • Reignite musical passion and persuade someone to find their unused voice
  • Raise your group profile
  • Help engage more with your local community
  • Take your music to those less able to access it
  • Provide a learning experience for young and old alike

But most of all, it will be fun for all involved!

SingSeptember 2020 will be an online initiative and we will launch the nationwide SingSeptember in 2021.

The Grand Central Chorus will be hosting an Open Rehearsal, on Zoom, running from 7.30 - 8.45 pm with a chance for a chat after that if you stay on.

The general schedule for the rehearsal will be as follows:
- Vocal warm up
- Mental warm up (be ready!)
- Learn a tag: Roses of Yesterday
- Sing a few polecats
- Discuss the video of the week: Men of Independence - Rhythm Medley
- Finish by singing some more polecats together

Please watch the video of the week ahead of the rehearsal (it let's us spend more time discussing it).
