Macapello is a Community Choir based in the Wiltshire market town of Melksham.
We started in 2012 and have been going from strength to strength, with around 30 regular members.
Why not come and join us…? The first session of next year (2016-7) is on September 14th at 7.30 at Aloeric School, and is a FREE! fun session to welcome potential new members. We will sing a few easy songs together and have a sociable evening.
Macapello exists to provide a fun, inexpensive musical evening every week for local people of all ages and abilities. We’re very relaxed and sociable!
Even if you’re a very unconfident singer – don’t worry! – you’ll find it accessible, inspiring and fun.
For more experienced singers, there’s the opportunity to improvise, sing a solo and learn uplifting songs in a range of foreign languages.
We sing great songs from all around the world, ‘a capella’ (without instruments), in glorious 4-part harmony.
No previous singing experience is necessary, and all the music is taught by ear, so no music-reading ability is required…and there are no auditions.
About twice a year we aim to give a concert for family, friends and the general public – they have all been a great success so far and really important for building the choir’s self-confidence.
All the sung parts and lyrics are made available online for you to practice with, and scores are sometimes available for more complex songs.
Rehearsals take place at Aloeric Primary School, St Michael’s Road, SN12 6HN (behind the Hungry Horse West End Inn) between 7.30 and 9.30 on Wednesday evenings in termtime.
Refreshments and delicious biscuits are available for 50p!
