ABOUT VOCALIGHTS CHOIR
Our Story so far
Vocalights is a renowned community pop and show choir,
based in Aylsham, Norwich, and was established in 2014.
Claire Devitt (Lawrence) is a local singing teacher, choir leader and performer. She founded Vocalights choir in November 2014 after realising that there was a need for fun community singing in the area, which is accessible to everyone, enjoyable, and can offer a place to socialise each week.
Claire has been teaching music and singing for 10 years, during which time she gained a BA Hons in Music in 2013 from the University of York. She started the choir alongside her private teaching practice at home shortly after returning back to Norfolk, and has since been offered further choir leading and music teaching work at schools and stage-schools around Norfolk. Claire works alongside her husband, Andy, and a fully committed team in being able to offer you the best possible singing experience each week!
Here at Vocalights, we sing all sorts of music, from pop to jazz, world to seasonal, classical to musical theatre, and much more! We are also partial to the odd choral medley (past pieces have included The Lion King and Jersey Boys!) We are open to suggestions from our members and enjoy exploring lots of different styles and songs, whilst learning new and healthy techniques such as correct breathing and good posture, and of course having fun along the way! (Silly vocal warm ups always help break the ice too!)
On your first visit with us, you will receive a complimentary session where you can join in the fun, meet some friendly faces and find your voice a little more. Whether you are a singing pro or just enjoy the idea of it but have never really tried it, we are open to all, and welcome anybody with an interest in singing through our door!
So what does Vocalights Choir have that so many other choirs don’t? Well, besides creating some truly fabulous sounds, years of experience, wonderful friendships and a brilliant, shining passion for our art, we're also committed to supporting singing in our local community. Why not come and give it a go! We perform two big concerts a year in the church we rehearse in all year round, which gives you a great chance to get up and sing on stage with a group of like-minded people, and boost your confidence in performance at the same time. Sound good? Head to our contact page and book your first session, or just turn up on the night if you live locally! We look forward to meeting you!
