Sing the 90s
This session is gonna be fun ! We will sing through some easy arrangements of everyone’s favourite songs from the 90s. You are gonna be surprised how quickly you can put a piece of music together and make it sound good under the skilled guidance of Merel.
We are already looking forward to shameless fun singing a 90s Dance Medley, and Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana). And, of course it wouldn’t be the 90s without the Spice Girls (Who do you think you are).
