A MESSAGE FROM OUR MUSICAL DIRECTOR, DENISE BEYNON
Welcome to our web site. We are a friendly choir – everyone is welcome. Although we work hard in rehearsals our main aim is enjoyment of the music we learn and perform. We sing a great variety of pieces as you can see from our Recent Repertoire page, so you are sure to find something to suit your taste!
Do come and give us a try. There is NO AUDITION. Send us a message using the box at the bottom of this page or just turn up one Monday.
Don’t worry if you feel that your singing or music reading abilities are not all they should be; we work on singing technique and will help you with any problems. You’ll find your skills improve with practice. Experienced singers will also find some new challenges.
THE PRACTICAL PART
HERE’S WHAT NEW MEMBERS SAY
“Everyone in the choir was so friendly, welcoming and warm towards me right from the beginning, it was lovely.” Laura E
“The leader is brilliant and the choice of music is great.” A Soprano
“A focused musical experience in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.” Ann
I joined the choir part way through the rehearsals for a most stunning piece of music. How can a choir attempt such an ambitious programme and at the same time welcome a new member with no experience of choral singing? I think the answer lies in the philosophy of the choir and its conductor Denise which is to include all, but also to challenge. As a consequence I’ve been able to grow in confidence, have fun and get ‘under the skin’ of the music in a way that I can honestly say has been a privilege. Martin
