The choir has two special sessions, on the 9th and 16th of July, before breaking up for the summer holidays.
The last two sessions of the term are “special” because they are being led by potential replacements for Emma Welton. Emma’s last session was on the 29th of June and although it was sad to see her moving on to different projects after leading the choir since its inception 7 years ago, we are excited to be meeting our next leader. The new person will take over on September 3rd on the same day that we move into the new community building.

The choir is completely inclusive. It really does not matter what your singing ability is, we want everyone who fancies a go to come along. It is great fun.
We are always looking for new members and we could do with redressing our gender balance a bit with a few more men. (If you are a man, come along. If you know a man, bring him with you.)
Children old enough to participate are welcome. Under 16s must be accompanied by a parent or carer. The accompanying adult does not have to participate: they can wait in the other room if they don’t fancy joining in themselves!
We meet at 7:15pm most term-time Tuesdays in the Hut in Belmont Park. We start again in 2018 on the 9th of January.
The per session fee is currently £5 for adults and £1 for under 16s. We sometimes have difficulty covering our costs, so we hope that everyone who can will pay the fee. We aim however to be an inclusive community group and concessions can be made for those that need them. We do not charge a sub for your first session, so you can come and check us out for nothing.

It is important to spread the word! If you have interested friends or family, ask them to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the mailing list. (Or contact Peter on 07946 637 782)
We perform publicly maybe 4 or 5 times a year. It isn’t compulsory to perform but obviously the more the merrier!
