Adult Singing Groups
WOAPA has TWO Singing Groups in Witney for adults (age 16+).
1. Our group for experienced singers who have sung in a group situation before.
2. Our group for beginners who are new to singing or are simply terrified of singiing in public.
Our group for experienced singers began in September 2011, with 23 singers, and has become extremely popular - now with over 90 people enrolled.
There are no auditions to join - and no requirement to be able to read music. The emphasis is on having FUN, while singing with like-minded people (we try not to use the word 'choir' as we feel that puts some people off). Our singers often tell us how great they feel afterwards.
We aim for a very contemporary repertoire - Adele, Michael Buble, Robbie Williams, Olly Murs, One Direction, Lenka, Glee, Emile Sande, Jessie J, Bruno Mars 'Lady GaGa' are already on our list as well as songs from modern musicals such as Hamilton, Dear Evan Hanson, 'Priscilla', Hairspray and Sister Act.
We often perform in the local community and beyond, including Christmas Light switch-ons, Outdoor festivals, flashmobs and even The Royal Albert Hall

What is a Showchoir ?
WOAPA's showchoir (for ages 7-16yrs) sings very modern songs - with our own WOAPA twist - and we have loads of fun while we do it. We are unique in that some members will be dancing too !
Where is it ?
WOAPA's showchoir meets on Saturdays in Henry Box School, Witney.
What kind of songs do they sing ?
Songs by singers like Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Jessie J, Miley Cyrus, Olly Murs, Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars - the kind of songs teens love to sing. Singers may offer their own suggestions.
Sounds brilliant but how do I know if my child will like it ?
As with everything we do at WOAPA, we offer you a FREE taster session. Book in, come along, meet us, join in...and then decide !
