The popular Thornbury Good Afternoon Choir will present their first FREE ADMISSION concert of the year at St Mary’s Church, Thornbury, on Friday evening April 1 at 7.30pm.
The choir is led by Brendan Casey with over 70 enthusiastic members who are busy preparing their programme for the concert which will support JIGSAW Thornbury, 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 Thornbury Good Afternoon Choir come from in and around the area, they meet every Thursday afternoon from 1pm-3pm at the Turnberries Community Centre. Everyone is welcome to come along and meet Brendan and the members of the choir.
The special guests for the concert will be The Thornbury Ukeaholics. After attending weekly lessons, the members wanted to continue so retired to the local pub to continue playing. They still meet every week for a lively practice session and the addictive nature of the ukulele led to the name.
This is a FREE ADMISSION concert with a retiring collection for JIGSAW Thornbury, doors opening at 7.00pm.
Brendan Casey said;
“It is going to be a great night of music and of course this will be the first time that the Thornbury Good Afternoon Choir have performed at a public concert in over two years. We are absolutely delighted to be back singing again!”
