It is with deep regret that we announce the postponement of all three of the remaining concerts for this season, due to the need to protect our members, musicians and audiences and in light of Government advice regarding the Coronavirus.
We have also cancelled all rehearsals for the time being. If you are interested in joining us when things get back to normal, please feel free to contact our New Members Officer as listed below; we will add you to our new members list and let you know when rehearsals re-commence.
If you share our passion for singing, and want to enjoy singing with some of Britain’s leading orchestras under the baton of internationally acclaimed conductors, find out more about how you can join us now! Check our Current Season to see what amazing music you could be singing with us!
Why not come along and join the chorus?
We have a passion for singing and aim to be inclusive. The chorus is always pleased to welcome new members in all voice parts, and we regularly run workshops for those who need support with reading music. Follow the links below for more information on how to join us.
We know that singing makes us feel great but now research shows how singing, like other creative activities, can actually improve your health and wellbeing. Science is also discovering how singing can treat illnesses from asthma to Parkinson’s, including helping to prevent colds and flu.
If you’d like to try us out, simply come along to one of our rehearsals. Find out more about rehearsals here. Contact Sally Turnbull for more details on 0143 363 0970 or 07771 578233, or email .
