If you love to sing and have always wondered what it’s like to belong to a CHOIR, now’s the chance to find out! The new NO-AUDITION Chippenham & Calne Good Afternoon Choir starts on Tuesday September 6 from 1pm-3pm at Pewsham Community Centre Association (Lodge Road, Chippenham) and there’s a warm welcome to go along and find out more.
Bath-based music man Grenville Jones started his Good Afternoon Choirs 12 years ago and there are now 24 across the West of England.
Matt Finch will lead the Chippenham & Calne Good Afternoon Choir. Matt lives in Bath and is well known as the MD of the Bath Light Operatic Group. He takes two other Good Afternoon Choirs in South Gloucestershire and Frome each week.
The choirs sing popular melodies in harmony and each choir raises money for a local charity selected by the members. Since returning to singing in October the choirs have already raised over £13,000 for various local organisations this year across the West of England.
Choir founder Grenville Jones said;
“Come along and meet Matt on a Tuesday afternoon from 1pm at the Pewsham Community Centre Association. There’s no charge for attending the first rehearsal and bring a friend.
“Choirs are great for meeting new friends and enjoying the best hobby in the world!”
