We are an enthusiastic choral society with around 100 members that performs up to four concerts each year, two with professional orchestra and soloists
Interested in joining us?
We are always keen to welcome singers of all ages, and there are reduced fees for those under 25 and in full time education. Anyone interested in joining us should come along to the Groves Hall, Sutton Valence School, ME17 3HL (just off the A274 at Sutton Valence) on a rehearsal evening at around 7.30pm. No auditions are required, although enthusiasm and commitment are expected. For further details please contact Julia Ireland via email email@example.com or phone 01622 891058.
We rehearse for 2 hours on Monday term-time evenings at 7.45pm. During our rehearsal we have a 10 minute coffee break complete with biscuits, cake and lots of chatter!
We perform at least two major concerts a year with professional soloists and the Beresford Sinfonia. We also undertake workshops, carol concerts and charitable functions.
We are a very sociable band of singers and run several social events during the year. At the end of the Autumn term there is a Christmas meal at a local venue, which is very well supported. It gives everyone a chance to chat and have some fun with a post-dinner game.
We regularly hold a quiz at the School, which is popular and competitive! As part of supporting our nominated charities we hold a 'Walk and Sing' where we are sponsored to walk to local churches, sing and then finish up with lunch hosted by a member of the choir. Our annual summer BBQ is another great occasion for a get together and is hosted by a member of the choir.
