About the Choir

Bexhill Harmony is a ladies choir based in Bexhill on Sea, East Sussex.

As you can see from our photos, we are a friendly group with a wide age range, from diverse backgrounds. What we have in common is that we love to sing.

Our style of singing is unaccompanied two part harmony and no auditions are necessary. We sing anything from The Beatles to songs from musicals and English folk songs. Those of us who canít read music use a hand held recorder to record our part so that we can practise between rehearsals.

Edna Akam is our Musical Director (pictured left).

Edna has taught music for over 40 years, some of that time in West Sussex but mostly in East Sussex, teaching cello and double bass in Hastings and Rother.

At one time she even managed to fit in directing a ladies choir in Worthing plus various school and music centre choirs too, participating in music festivals and concerts.

 

 

 

Singing Is Good For You

"Enhances mental awareness, concentration and memory,
Releases endorphins that make you happy and helps alleviate anxiety,
Improves your heart rate and circulation,
Helps you sleep, boosts your immune system, boosts confidence,
Singing has physical benefits too because it is an aerobic activity and increases oxygenation in the blood stream and exercises major muscles in the upper body even when sitting."

Professor Graham Welch, Chair of Music Education at the University of London
