GLorEE represented St John’s Church Crowthorne at the final of Let’s Sing Reading Choir Competition at the Hexagon in Reading on 1st March.
We are a group of singers who have fun singing songs we all love and offering them up to God in worship. We also love sharing our songs with people whether it’s at a special service in Church, out on the Morgan Rec at the May Fair, with the residents of Oak Lodge or the shoppers at Holme Grange. Any excuse, we’ll sing! This year we also had the pleasure of singing at Hannah and Matt’s wedding which was really special.
Our rehearsals take place on a Wednesday evening in the Church Hall from 7pm for about an hour. As well as using downloaded backing tracks, we also sing acapello or accompanied by an acoustic guitar. We don’t read music – we feel the music. When we first start learning a song, we tend to just sing the melody. But what we find over time is that the song develops in its own special way (we call it “being GLorEEfied!”) with different harmonies and changes in tempo and sometimes even words.

Some comments from our group about what GLorEE means to them
"Being part of GLorEE means that I get to sing some great songs with a lovely bunch of people, we worship God and we contribute to the life of the Church! And it’s so much fun!"
"GLorEE is a fun way to throw your head back and sing as loud as you can! It has helped me improve my confidence when singing and performing in a group. I also enjoy the Glee-like aspect . . . in a modern day choir."
