Choir also learned a new song individually whilst in lockdown and through the magic of film & a lot of magic mixing, a video was produced showcasing GCC - Symphony by Clean Bandit

we don’t own the rights to the music so we need to work a solution around this as we would love to share it with you sometime.

GCC ZOOMERS
Have been receiving a few lessons in Reggae from our Guest MD Reggie for the past month.

It’s been great fun and we are currently trying to master a “ Yorkshire Version “ of Bob Marley’s Redemption Song
along with
Kingston Town
Everything I Own
Cupid
In the mood for love
Come back Liza

Before Christmas our Guest MD for a few weeks was Thanda
Who was mixing up African Zulu with Lewis Capaldi
As well as Zulu song Hamba Naye which you may have heard us sing in the past.

This just shows the vast array of music genres there is and how it can be worked into a choir repertoire & open a few minds and voices along the way.

Thank you gentlemen

GCC, was set up to combat isolation & loneliness... it’s been strange not seeing our 42 fellow family choir members or singing together at this time of year.
Let’s hope 2021 gets us back together safely.
In the meantime
We wish you all a very merry Christmas what ever you do enjoy & stay safe

Here in the U.K we are preparing to enter a second national lockdown, and we know many of you may be feeling overwhelmed today. We’ve put together some info that we hope will help anyone worried about their mental health right now. We’ll be here to help you stay connected and singing, and hopefully bring a little joy into your homes, via our virtual choir 💚
For additional mental health resources in the U.K you can visit www.mind.org.uk

National su***de prevention day.
You are not alone in having these thoughts , reach to speak to someone.
For me (Pam) I found music helped with my mental health & no better feeling than singing with my family at GCC, who have never judged and are accepting to all.
Find something you love and try to enjoy

Hi it’s been a while since we posted.
Although we can’t physically meet we have been having Virtual Rehearsals with some of the choir family, to sing & chat but mainly just to check in and support each other.
Please keep in touch with your friends & family if you can during this strange time.
