Rounds and Warm-ups

Rounds are a wonderful way to get people singing in harmony without trying.  They are a brilliant link between warm up exercises and real pieces as they use the full voice but not too much brain as everyone sings basically the same tune, just at different times!  It’s also fun to mix up your voices so that Sops can sing with Basses, Altos with Tenors etc.  People get out of their familiar formation and maybe get to know others in the choir they hadn’t met before.  We plan for this to be an ever expanding section for creative ideas and ways to warm up at the start of each rehearsal.
