What is Vchoir?
Vchoir is an online space to have fun, sing songs and laugh. Kelle and I started Vchoir when Covid kicked off. We quickly decided we loved it and we wanted to dedicate our time to making it awesome.
What makes it different to other choirs?
Good question - Virtual sticker for you! The main difference is at Vchoir NO ONE CAN HEAR YOU SING! All participants are muted except for lucky old me.
You can belt out the hits without a care in the world. Feel like the superstar that you already are. Do you have an inner Beyonce, Madonna or Bryan Adams (I’m Bryan for sure) when you’re in the shower? Ready to unleash them?
At the end of the day I want to see people smiling, laughing, singing and if the mood takes them dancing!
How long is a choir session?
Our sessions are 1hr 15mins long.
How do I access the online sessions?
We use video conferencing software called Zoom. This enables you to participate from the comfort of your own home via a unique link provided by email before each session. This software is free for you to participate in. Help videos are available in the ‘Vault’ (this is the members area of our website that you will have access to once you sign up).
When you buy your Online membership, you will be added to our mailing list. Each week, you’ll be emailed a link and passcode which will give you access to the online session.
Do I have to speak on screen?
No. All participants are muted throughout. You can chat in the chat (text) section of zoom during the rehearsal and send us your comments but you will not be expected to speak on camera without your consent.
Can people hear me sing?
Noooooooooooo - Participants will be able to hear the music and choir leader. Due to the latency (delay) it is not possible to synchronise and hear all of the singers at the same time. But you will be able to see each other so sing with a smile!
What styles do you sing
Everything. If it would get you on the dance floor we’ll have a go! We love a theme and getting dressed up too so ABBA nights etc are a MUST at Vchoir.
Do you raise money for charity?
YES. We run regular fundraisers when you can invite friends and family to buy a one off ticket for the theme night. Our most recent fundraiser was ABBATASTIC in aid of Mind.org
Which devices are compatible with Vchoir Online?
You can partake in sessions using your Zoom compatible devices including laptops, smartphones, and tablets that have a microphone and camera or webcam installed. It is recommended that you use headphones to experience better audio quality, though this is not essential.
