Frome’s popular Good Afternoon Choir will present their first concert of the year at Holy Trinity Church on Saturday March 5.
The choir is led by Matt Finch with over 70 enthusiastic members who are busy preparing their programme for the concert which will support the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance, a charity chosen by the members of the choir.
The Good Afternoon Choirs were started by Bath-based Grenville Jones 12 years ago and there are now 19 across the South West of England with over 800 members ‘Singing in the Afternoon’.
There are no auditions to join and members of the Frome Good Afternoon Choir come from in and around the town, they meet every Monday afternoon from 2pm-4pm at Holy Trinity Church. Everyone is welcome to come along and meet Matt and the members of the choir.
The special guest for the concert will be baritone Brendan Casey who performed in leading musical theatre groups in New Zealand before moving to England. He combines being an in-demand soloist with also leading the Thornbury Good Afternoon Choir every Thursday.
Tickets priced £10 are on sale from members of Frome Good Afternoon Choir or by calling 01761 472468 – they will also be available on the door on the night of the concert.
Matt Finch said;
“It is going to be a great night of music and of course this will be the first time that the Frome Good Afternoon Choir have performed at a public concert in over two years. We are absolutely delighted to be back singing again!”
