What we’re about

Heart & Soul Community Singers have been meeting for many years but found a new name during the pandemic.

We sing simple but beautiful songs about the heart and soul of human experience; joy and sadness, hope and grief and everything in between.

We co-create community with each other through singing together and generally leave sessions feeling nourished, uplifted and connected.

We enjoy heartening the community around us by singing in public spaces and hold a mixture of indoor and outdoor sessions.

We are always open to new members; no experience needed, there are no auditions and no expectation to sign up for any specified length of time.

We aim to be accessible to anyone who wants to sing with others; there is no music to read; all songs are taught by ear at a gentle pace and newer and less confident singers have the support of those more experienced.

We run several sessions throughout the week, some themed. All members are welcome to attend as many or as few sessions as they can/wish to.

Monday, Thursday and Sunday sessions cover a wide range of songs from various cultures and traditions. Monthly Saturdays we Sing for the Earth or drop into Sacred Song. Fridays is Taize chants in Chester Cathedral.

There are payment options for pay per session or a monthly subscription and we are happy to negotiate reductions for those on low incomes.

We are led by Ella Speirs, an experienced Natural Voice Practitioner and group facilitator, who is supported by many members who help in big and small ways to ensure things run smoothly.

If this appeals you are very welcome to come along anytime and try your first session for free.

NB We have been singing throughout the pandemic and have developed good covid safe practices which we respectfully ask all singers to follow.
