Have you ever sung with a band, choir, or theatre group? (note these questions help us know your musical background)
Choirs, barbershop, jazz combo.
Can you read sheet music? (not a requirement!)
Yes, if it isn't too fast.
Do you play any instruments?
Are you a soprano, alto, tenor or bass? (ok to guess)
We mostly perform to nonreligious audiences, so our music caters humanist themes and satirical pieces that rib religion. Songs include "Every Sperm is Sacred" (Monty Python), "Imagine" (John Lennon), and more along those lines. Are you ok with that?
Our vocal group is the Voices of Reason. We sing a cappella and choral music with a secular/atheist/humanist twist! We practice on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of every month, from 6pm to 8pm, plus occasional performances. Our intention in having a meetup group is for others to know how to find us. At this moment, we have approximately 12 regular members.
Learning songs and improving is an ongoing process, so please join the group if you're able to meet more than just once. There are no group fees and you can always change your mind! Each member of the group is democratically involved to ensure we're collectively making good choices, and likewise, our songs/genres vary. If you can read music, that will help, and if you don't, we have practice audio files to help you learn the tunes. Either way, you'll get a lot out of this group as you grow your musicianship and ability to harmonize/blend.
Our group is really about having fun and becoming better musicians, first and foremost. It really doesn't matter what your religious or political beliefs are, as the ultimate agenda of this group is to sound great together and entertain.
Our performances cater to nonreligious audiences, so our music range goes from softer humanist themes to satire pieces that rib religion. Some of our music includes "Every Sperm is Sacred" (Monty Python), "Imagine" (John Lennon), and more along those lines.
More details about our practice location (in Echo Park), our sheet music, etc are on our meetup calendar which is available to members after joining this meetup. For performance requests, please write to us at email@example.com or call (424) 222-9095.
