Body of Sound is a women’s choir based in Sheffield.
Body of Sound has been running since 1997 and the women in the group have been coming for anything from 2 months to 20+ years. We’re here because we love singing, enjoy the sound we make together and want to get more confident in using our voices. We don’t have any auditions; even if you feel a bit apprehensive about singing in a group or possibly quite terrified, you’re very welcome – a lot of us felt that way when we first joined and some of us still do.
We do occasional local gigs and busking sessions throughout the year for causes we support. In the past we’ve also sung at events like Street Choirs Festival and Raise your Banners.
What do Body of Sound sing?
Our choir sings a wide range of music. We sing British folk tunes, African, Japanese and Kurdish songs, to name but a few. We also sing some political songs, and the occasional piece of pop.
Here is a link to “Be Yourself”, a song written by our Musical Director, Kate Thomas, which provides an example of the type of music we sing:
