MEMBERS of a 'tuneless' choir are encouraging Oxford residents to make a New Year’s resolution to sing, ahead of their first meeting of the year tonight.

The Tuneless Choir, open to those who 'can’t carry a tune in a bucket', are looking for new members to join their weekly meetings on Wednesday nights in Summertown.

Angela Knapp, who runs the Oxford Tuneless Choir, said: “Whatever your ability you can find somewhere to sing, and I’d encourage you to do so.

"Tuneless Choir is making a difference to people’s lives, and we would love more people to discover the delight of belting out the lyrics to their favourite songs, whether it be with us or with a more conventional choir.

“Having no fear of judgement really does give our choir members the confidence to ‘sing like no one is listening’, which has become our motto. It is incredibly liberating.”

The choir meets every Wednesday from 7.45pm to 9.15pm at NOA, Summertown.

First time attendance costs £10 including registration.

It’s then the equivalent of £5 per week for a term for regular attendance, or £7 if you “pay as you go”, including refreshments.
