We are always looking for new members, particularly in the Bass and First Tenor sections. If you’ve never sung in a choir before, don’t worry, it’s a very easy going atmosphere and you don’t have to audition, just come along and sit with established members who will help you to acclimatise. It’s a very rewarding hobby which gives great satisfaction both in rehearsal and performance. We carry out between 6 -

The Choir extends its deepest sympathy to Sian and her family at this time.
