Singing in the Afternoon
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 Churchdown (N.Glos) Good Afternoon Choir starts on Tuesday February 7 from 1-3pm at Churchdown Community Centre 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.
Laurie is the youngest son of Grenville. He has 20 years experience working as a professional musician and has gained degrees in both percussion and classical singing studies. He has performed in some of the UK’s most prestigious venues and London’s West End. In 2008 Laurie decided to change his career and go into secondary education as a Music teacher. He is now Director of Music at Westonbirt Senior School.
He has always had a passion for singing and he started to conduct choirs ten years ago working with Youth Choirs in schools and colleges and is the founder of award winning Malmesbury Choir and is Assistant Director for the City of Bath Male Choir.
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 £19,000 for local charities and organizations across the West of England.
Choir founder is Grenville Jones. He said;
“Come along and meet the younger Mr Jones and our Churchdown (N.Glos) Good Afternoon Choir and Laurie on a Tuesday afternoon from 1pm at Churchdown Community Centre. 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.”
