Yate & Chipping Sodbury’s popular Good Afternoon Choir will present their first concert of the year at St Mary’s Church, Yate, on Saturday April 30.
The choir is led by Sian Walters with over 50 enthusiastic members who are busy preparing their programme for the concert which will support the Great Western 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 Yate & Chipping Sodbury Good Afternoon Choir come from in and around the town, they meet every Wednesday afternoon from 2pm-4pm at St Mary’s Church. Everyone is welcome to come along and meet Sian and the choir.
Special guests for the concert will be the Apollo Wind Band, a Yate-based band formed in 2014 for beginners and returning players. They play a variety of music genres and are part of the Avon Wind Band Association.
Tickets priced £10 are on sale from members of Yate & Chipping Sodbury Good Afternoon Choir or will be available on the door on the night of the concert.
Sian Walters said;
“It is going to be a great night of music and of course this will be the first time that the Yate & Chipping Sodbury Good Afternoon Choir have performed at a public concert in over two years. We are absolutely delighted to be back singing again!”
