The popular Bristol Good Afternoon Choir will present their first concert of the year at Westbury on Trym Methodist Church on Saturday evening March 4 at 7.30pm (doors open 7.00pm).
The choir is led by John Sandford with over 50 enthusiastic members who are busy preparing their programme for the concert which will support Gympanzees, a charity chosen by the members of the choir.
The Good Afternoon Choirs were started by Bath-based Grenville Jones 13 years ago and there are now 23 across the South West of England with over 900 members ‘Singing in the Afternoon’.
There are no auditions to join and members of the Bristol Good Afternoon Choir come from in and around the area, they meet every Monday afternoon from 2pm-4pm at Westbury on Trym Methodist Church. Everyone is welcome to come along and meet John and the members of the choir.
The special guests for the concert will be the Bristol Military Wives Choir who are just one in a network of over 70 MWCs across the UK and internationally. Military life can be challenging with families moving frequently due to new postings and deployments meaning long periods of separation from loved ones. The Military Wives Choirs is a charity that has been set up to bring women in the military community closer together through singing and to provide valuable support.
Tickets priced £8 are on sale from members of Bristol Good Afternoon Choir or by calling 01761 472468 – they will also be available on the door on the night of the concert.
John Sandford said;
“It is going to be a great night of music and we are absolutely delighted to be sharing the stage with the Bristol Military Wives Choir!”
