A wonderful new start!

September 13th saw the enthusiastic return of thirty-four choir members. We also welcomed nine new members, including three basses! It’s great to have you all with us.

With the very able assistance of our wonderful accompanist, Karen Smith, we are very much enjoying preparing for our first concert since December 2019. See the delightful poster above for details.

We are a non-auditioning community choir so why not come along? To any potential tenors and basses, our choir needs you!

We were not idle during lockdown and were able to sing together online

Despite all the difficulties, there was so much enthusiasm from members to find a way to sing together that we set up zoom sessions online led by our accompanist, Karen Smith. We practised short pieces such as Ave verum Corpus by Mozart, Franck’s Panis angelicus, Locus iste by Bruckner, O Jesus when I come to die by Bach and If ye love me by Tallis and sang together for the first time at our picnic in August.
