Sing with us!

The ‘Last Night of the Proms’ concert on 5th November proved to be a wonderful, well supported and fun evening prompting some very psoitive audience reaction (see below). There followed an excellent carol concert on 16th December with a full house.
In early January we started rehearsing for two café style concerts to be held on Saturday 25th February. From the first week in March we will be rehearsing weekly for a ‘Come and Sing Messiah’ 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 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.

    We want to say how much we enjoyed Saturday’s concert. It was a real treat to see everyone again. Both choir and orchestra were absolutely terrific, the soloists too. And we’re looking forward to being with you again for December’s Carol Concert.

    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.
