‘Community music-making at its best’ (Stratford Herald)
We offer an exciting and ambitious programme of major choral works which includes many of the all-time favourites and some little-known masterpieces. The choir presents two major concerts per year, in May and December, and sings carols each December to patients and staff at the Ellen Badger Hospital. The choir is a member of Making Music, the National Federation of Music Societies, and aims to spread the joy of music, especially welcoming school students (at no cost) as choir members, and ensuring that accompanied children are admitted free to concerts.
New singers are warmly welcomed, whatever their experience. We do not hold auditions. All we ask is a desire to sing (and regular attendance at rehearsals!). Need help with sight-singing? We produce CDs of the individual parts so that less experienced singers can get to know the music at their own pace.
We hope to begin rehearsals in September 2020 for our December concert. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this is not yet confirmed. Further information, and a start date for the rehearsals, will be given nearer the time.
