A small group of friends in Duquesa who enjoy singing were disappointed to find that there was no English-singing choir in the area so they decided to form one. From this the ParaSol Singers was established. In a short time membership has grown to over 20 but, with most people having family or holiday breaks, we are always looking for new members to maintain a core group. The ability to 'hold a tune' is more important than experience or technical ability and age is no barrier! We sing mostly pop and rock songs but anything "from Gershwin to GaGa" is fine if the group and our Musical Director like the number.
Singing is a great way to relax as well as to meet people and the satisfaction or the "buzz" that you get from participating in and contributing to a great choral sound is tremendous. But we are not just there for ourselves, we want to give something to the community. It has been proven that singing with other people, or even just listening to a choir or singing group, has therapeutic value and makes people just feel happier. The ParaSol Singers are therefore willing to go to sing at care homes, hospices etc, so that others can benefit from the joy of song.
