The choir now has about fifteen members and we meet on Tuesdays at 6:45pm before some of our members go up to bellringing.
We are affiliated to the Royal Schools of Church Music and are an SATB choir, who sing regularly for services, weddings and other special occasions. About 3-4 times every year we are joined by the Youth Orchestra to accompany us for special anthems. In July we hold a Music Week each year when we ask local musical groups to participate and this year we propose to put on a performance of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat”, finishing on Sunday July 14th with hymn singing accompanied by Newtown Silver Band. More details of the Music Week later.
Practices are always enjoyable and, as well as the serious business of trying to perfect our performances, we also have any excuse for a party: birthdays, anniversaries, pancake parties, Christmas etc. The main party of the year is the choir and bellringers dinner just before Christmas when we get together and enjoy ourselves.
The choir is always happy to welcome new members so if you are interested please contact:
