Choirs from all over

Sevenoaks District 

filled the Stag Theatre with music on

16th May, as we came together to

share the joy of singing.  D'Vine joined

forces with Eden Songsters for the folk song Shenandoah before the A Cappella 

ladies added another layer for a rousing

sea shanty from the Hebrides.  

The evening came to an explosive end, 

with a joyful massed chorus of Sweet 

Caroline, conducted by Barrie Payne,

as a load of confetti rained down on us!

  

Singing at the Stag!

David Phelops Workshop.jpg

Join David Phelops as he leads us through 2 hours of singing and fun!  David's life is filled with music and singing - both new and old - but he's always looking for inspiring sounds to enjoy and share.  He runs More Than Just a Choir in North London, which offers singing and socialising for adults affected by mental ill health.  We can't wait to hear what David has to offer, so please come and join us.  The workshop is free of charge but donations to D'Vine Singers would be much appreciated, as we're a grant-funded group.  To book a place, please email jacky.hintze@outlook.com

ALL ABOUT US ...
If you're looking for emotional uplift and want to sing soulful songs with a bunch of friendly people, come and enjoy some warm companionship in our supportive singing group.  We learn a wide range of songs by ear - and you don't need any prior musical knowledge or experience of singing in choir.  Please make your way to the little blue door round the side of the building.  We have a small car park at the Church and roadside parking alongside, including disabled bays if you need them.  There's no fee as our Wellbeing Choir is grant-funded.  If health or mobility is a problem, please let us know and we'll see what we can do to help.  To find out more, please contact jacky.hintze@outlook.com or give Jacky a call on 07708 237415. 

 To come in on a Friday, please use the little blue door at the side of the building

OUR ROOTS

The D'Vine Singers are a friendly, informal group who meet to sing for fun, with a strong focus on mental wellbeing.  We take our name from the Vine Baptist Church in Sevenoaks, where we meet from 12.00-1.30 pm on Fridays.  The group began life as part of a funded research study into singing and mental health.  When the project came to an end, with the value of singing getting a definite ‘thumbs up’, we were keen to carry on as an independent group and here we are today, still going strong after many happy years of mutual support.  To read more about the initial research, please go to the Research section.

OUT AND ABOUT

Although we mainly sing for fun, we do enjoy getting out and about in the community from time to time.  There's no pressure to take part but lots of people find they get a 'buzz' from these occasions and we love sharing our joy of singing.  Here we're joining the Forget-me-not Cafe at the Hayloft, upstairs in the Conservation Suite at Knole.  

 

 

 

 

Last year's Summer of Love featured the fabulous Skiffle

Express, who led a rousing finale of All You Need is Love.
