We'd love to say a big thank you to the six new singers who joined our regular Chorus members on January 20th to learn a song for our Blue Monday singing event.

The idea was to brighten what is traditionally seen as the most miserable day of the year by learning a brand new song together from scratch in four-part harmony. 

Nick Beever, our new musical director, chose an Elton John Classic for the occasion. And so it was that, after a short warm-up, we started to run through the score of "Can You Feel The Love Tonight", known to millions who've seen The Lion King over the years. 

The new guys put in a fantastic effort, as you can see by clicking here to view the final result.

Naturally, we're hoping that some of those who joined us for Blue Monday will want to sing some more. But if you missed the opportunity don't worry. We'll have another "learn a song" event in the summer. Capital Chorus is happy to welcome visitors to all our Monday night rehearsals, so if you can't wait for the summer then drop by whenever you can. We'd love to meet you.
