Singing in the Afternoon – NEW Community Choir in Wincanton
If you love to sing and have always wondered what it’s like to sing in a CHOIR, now’s the chance to find out! The new NO-AUDITION South Somerset Good Afternoon Choir starts on Monday February 27th with our conductor Ruth Jenkins from 1-3pm at Wincanton War Memorial Hall, Wincanton, BA9 9JF 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 23 across the West of England.
Ruth Jenkins graduated in Music at Birmingham University, specialising in voice and conducting the University Chamber Choir. After training as a Music Therapist at Roehampton Institute, and conducting the Wimbledon YMCA choir, she worked in the NHS for 7 years in clinics and hospital settings. Ruth conducts our popular North Somerset GAC at Nailsea and looks forward to welcoming you to the South Somerset good afternoon choir at Wincanton War Memorial Hall.
Good Afternoon Choirs sing popular melodies in harmony and each choir raises money for a local charity selected by the members. In 2022 the choirs raised over £22,000 for local charities and organizations across the West of England.
Choir founder is Grenville Jones. He said;
“Come along and meet the South Somerset Good Afternoon Choir and Ruth on a Monday afternoon from 1pm at Wincanton War Memorial Hall, Wincanton. There’s no charge for attending the first rehearsal, there are NO auditions - why not bring a friend.”
“Choirs are great for meeting new friends and enjoying the best hobby in the world, I’ll see you there!”
