Swag Choir at The Point
Walking around The Point on a Thursday night, the building is buzzing with the sound of the likes of Little Mix, Beyonce and Major Lazer from a 20 strong, dynamic vocal group like no other…Thursday night is Swag Choir night!
Formed in 2015, Swag Choir is a positive and passionate group of 14-18 year olds who combine vocals and choreography to create their own take on a wide variety of different music. Over the past few years genres covered have included; Pop, Hip Hop, Drum n Bass, R n B, Rap and even classical! Not like any choir you’ve ever seen before, this group is more like an enormous pop band than a choral group.
Rehearsals take place at The Point on Thursday evenings at 6:15-7:30pm and have a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The group welcomes singers of all standards and styles. There is no audition or even ever a need to sing on your own! Many members of the choir have said they joined not knowing what to expect and that initially they were nervous, but after a few sessions felt more confident and completely comfortable singing within the group. Several members have also joined without previously knowing anyone else in the group and have now gained a whole new close knit group of friends.
Since forming, Swag Choir have performed and been well received at a number of different events in some fantastic venues including; ‘iSing’ and ‘Sing Out’ Doncaster Music Education Hub’s massed singing events at The Dome, ‘Beethoven Weekend’ at Cast and ‘T Fest’ Doncaster’s biggest music festival!
2016 saw the addition of our training choir “Swaglets”. This group is aimed at age 11+ and is a training choir for any younger budding superstars who like to sing and strut their stuff! This group meets before the main choir at 5:15-6:15pm.
Swag Choir is unique in what it offers as a group, with its fusion of song and dance, and the many popular genres covered. The quality of performance is always high but is achieved through teamwork and a supportive vibe amongst its members – but above all Swag Choir is a massive amount of fun!
