Choir Rehearsals Summer/ Autumn 2017
The choir start rehearsals for the new session on Monday August 21st at 7.30pm in Portland Church hall, Troon. We are always pleased to welcome new members with a love of singing.
We sing a mixture of items – some sacred, some from opera, some from the shows etc. We perform in two popular concerts per year – one at Christmas and one in the Spring. Our conductor Sam Prescott and accompanist Andrew Thom are two very talented young musicians who guide us through the new pieces that we’ll be hoping to perform in our Christmas concert.
On Monday 28th August we are having an “Come and Try Singing in a Choir” event. This would be a chance to spend an evening with us to either observe what goes on at a rehearsal or join in with us for the evening with no pressure to join the choir permanently. We would of course be very happy if, in the end you decided to come back to join us on a regular basis!
The musical part of the evening would be followed by a finger buffet when you would have a chance to ask questions.
At the time of writing we have thirty female voices and twelve male voices singing with us.
We would like to be a larger choir with a better balance of male and female voices.
Do consider joining us on Monday 21st or Monday 28th August .
Open Evening on the 28th with a glass of wine and some finger food.
