Our new year started on Wednesday 15th January, when we welcomed everyone back and held our AGM, concluding with drinks and nibbles giving everyone a proper chance to catch up and talk to new members.
The choir continues to go from strength to strength, having benefitted from an influx of new members over the last year or so. We now have a large and balanced choir across all four parts (soprano, alto, tenor and bass) and we are a jolly, enthusiastic bunch. We meet at Liss Infants School at 7.30pm on Wednesday for two hours of singing a range of music from The Beetles to Queen, Mary Poppins to My Fair Lady as well as folk songs, Verdi and Vivaldi.
New singers are always welcome to join us. We are a community choir, which means that we have no auditions, you do not need to be able to read music and we have an enormous amount of fun singing every week. We are lead by Erica Kollek who is an experienced singer and teacher. All you need is enthusiasm and you will pick things up very quickly while enjoying group singing.
Where we sing
During the year we sing for pleasure and primarily for our amusement. There is a summer concert to aim for and, in the past, we have raised funds for The Rosemary Foundation, the Liss Infant School, the Southern Spinal Injuries Trust and the Petersfield Counselling Service. As a thanks to Liss Infants School for letting us use their hall for our weekly rehearsals we have been able to provide funds to provide musical instruments.
