Come and sing with us!

After the triumph of The Kingdom

After a pulsating performance of Elgar’s The Kingdom in Arundel, with choristers from other choirs, Basildon Choral members are now rehearsing on Wednesday evenings for ‘Last Night of the Proms – Basildon style’ to be performed on Saturday 5th November at St Martin’s church in Basildon Town Centre.
We are a welcoming group of amateur singers with a warm friendly atmosphere and always looking for new members.  Previous experience is not necessary.
Look at our post on our quest for new voices here.
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.

    At the concert I was sat next to Liz, a Horsham choir member.
    Just before the concert began, we were chatting and she said that she had been talking to some of their men during the meal break and complimenting them – saying how well the men were singing.
    They told her it was because of the Basildon men – ‘They’re good!’
    They were indeed – a fabulous concert! It all came together brilliantly and was a sizzling sing. Not many choirs have the opportunity of such an experience.

    From our Musical Director, Stephen Hope, to all choristers:
    CONGRATULATIONS!! All your hard work and my relentless pursuit of my interpretation totally paid off. I was very proud of you as were the orchestra and soloists, who were really impressed -THANK YOU!

    I hope you felt the tough moments and vigorous rehearsals were worth it in the end – it was one of the best ever – and one of the most precise in terms of detail and ensemble – BRAVO!!

    Absolutely fabulous concert! More than justified the sometimes challenging rehearsals. I hope everyone had the same sense of elation and enjoyment to have been involved in such a great experience. Jen

    When we start rehearsing these wonderful works one can hardly imagine how absolutely thrilling and exhilarating the performance will be, but it was, in every sense. What a privilege to be part of it.

    Hi i am 37 and i enjoy singing. Not sure if my voice is the greatest but singing makes me feel good in myself. What are the requirements to join your group?

    Thank you for taking the time to read this

      Charmaine, just a willingness to try singing with others. We sing from music scores so if you can read music it helps, but lots of people who join a choir can’t read music at first but learn as they go. We would be pleased to see you on Wednesday if you are free.
