From early January we rehearsed for two café style concerts which were held on Saturday 25th February and in March we started rehearsing weekly for a ‘Come and Sing Mozart Requiem’ performance on Saturday 8th April.  If you wish to join us just for this you will be most welcome, on the Wednesday nights and/or at the workshop on the day.  Registration (£15) is at 10.30am at our usual rehearsal venue followed by a rehearsal at the concert venue, St Martin’s Church at 3.00pm with the concert starting at 7.45pm. For more details see poster below.

We are a welcoming group of amateur singers with a warm friendly atmosphere and always looking for new members.  Previous experience is not necessary. We sing a variety of great music – sacred, popular, folk and songs from the shows. Come along and give it a go – you might surprise yourself!  Rehearsals are every Wednesday evening in term time at 7.45 – 9.45 pm at Langdon Hills Methodist Church, Basildon, SS16 6EX.

    Thought you might be interested in comments from Geoff Williams about our Carol Concert. Geoff and his wife , Linda, travelled all the way from Cornwall to attend! (Not just for the concert, I must add.)
    He wrote,
    St.Martin’s was pretty well full.
    The concert opened, as ever, with the Matins Responsary. Mark’s first notes,
    ” looking from afar”, caused the hairs on the back of my neck to stand erect, His voice improves with age; and the choir was superb, all the way through the whole concert. The readings were clear and direct. I must single out David Tweddle who read the John Chapter 1 passage”In the beginning was the word…” with such grace. It’s a passage that is heard umpteen times over the Christmas period, but never, not this year anyway, as well as David read it.

    Our Café Style concerts on Saturday 25th February were hard work but what a treat for singers and audience alike. We all had really good fun as well as good food and good music!
    The choir was flagging after a rehearsal and afternoon show as well as setting the hall up for both afternoon and evening performances but Stephen rallied us in style for a smashing evening’s entertainment. Stephen’s ‘chat’ in between items was just right and audience participation made everyone smile.
    Never thought we’d all manage the words to ‘Rhythm of Life’ – but we did!!
    Thanks to all those who worked so hard to make it such a success.
