Where’s the Cake? 


World songs in a capella harmony



 A Community Choir in Martlesham Heath















About Where’s the Cake?


Where’s the Cake? is a community “choir” based at my home in Martlesham Heath. It is open to anyone who would like to come and sing with us. We started on and off maybe 10-12 years ago with singing garden parties and is has developed since. Not so much a choir as a gathering of friends, new and old, and willing victims to sing and eat cake and be used as guinea pigs for new songs


We sing (or will be singing) songs from many World genres. Our favourites are African songs, gospels and shanties with a smattering of pop songs. In addition we have sung Maori, Macedonian, medieval French with the delights of Corsican and Georgian yet to come. We have now sung the best part of a 100 different songs


We learn the different parts of each song and then put them together. We make lots of mistakes, have a good laugh and then put them right. We usually learn 1 or 2 new songs and then go over ones we have done previously. We can sing 6-9 songs in an evening. Being a smaller group, it is like individual attention without singing on your own. I can hear when one voice is going wrong so I get the whole section to keep trying until it is right. There is always time and we all help anyone having difficulty with any part


There are three requirements for participants to fulfil

     Do you know how to have fun?

     Can you help make it work?

     Can you eat cake?

All you need is the confidence to phone and come along.


We still have occasional party evenings and singing in the garden
