Join our free singing sessions with IWD Derby Rebel Women’s Choir! We’ll sing uplifting songs that celebrate diverse inspiring women in our fun, friendly, empowering sessions.
No singing experience needed, no need to read music, no auditions, no judgement. It’s not the notes you sing, it’s the joy you bring!
This is the last in a series of 5 sessions. It’s okay if you can’t attend all 5. Dates for your diary:
Sat 29th Aug
Sat 5th Sept
Sat 12th Sept
Sat 19th Sept
Sat 3rd Oct
Sessions are hosted on Zoom, where you’ll be able to sing along with Jo, our session leader. The link will be sent to pre-registered attendees via email before the session starts.
The sessions are for women (self-defining) and girls over 7 years. For safeguarding, we ask that you attend with your child, as we are unable to host unaccompanied children. We ask all attendees to be mindful if children are present. Any person behaving inappropriately would be removed from the Zoom meeting.
This session has been kindly funded by Foundation Derbyshire. Donations (optional) are very much welcomed and will help us continue to fund future sessions. Don’t be put off attending if you can’t donate – we want your voice!
