What Hulla Members Say......
"I’m quite shy and find the choir helps me overcome this. Now I’m NOISY and LOUD!"
Feel the Force
"Choir always puts me in a good mood and I love meeting all the people. What I get out of choir is that it makes me feel really kind of spiritually happy and as cheesy as it sounds, like I can take on anything!"
"It opened a new world until then unknown. I also gained more confidence and contentment."
"It's great fun joining in what I’d wanted to do my whole life – a cappella harmonies and good friends. It’s put me on the road to more musical pursuits and learning the guitar."
Taught by Ear
"I was in my school choir, and I have memories of the choirmaster being very strict. I can't read music, but in Hullabaloo that doesn't matter, as everything is taught by ear. The songs are better than the ones I remember from school too!"
Welcome to New Friends
"I am new to Brighton. I was welcomed immediately, I have made friends down here now through the choir. I love the rehearsals, the variety and the energy!"
Healing Power of Singing
"No matter how horrible I feel before I arrive, I leave feeling amazing, uplifted and relaxed. Singing can help you get rid of anger, tiredness and general misery!"
"As a frustrated performer it’s great to have a performance outlet and to be involved in the creative process too."
