Send us your suggestions for our retiring collection!

Whilst you're doing all your choir practise this week can you also have think of organisations that you would like us to support at the end of our concert in May? In the past for our Summer concerts we have given collections to Macmillan Cancer Support, Petworth Cottage Nursing home, The Brain Tumour Charity, Canine Partners, Chestnut Tree House and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust to name but a few.  In fact since we started as a choir back in 2012 we have raised over £8,300 for good local and national causes!

Enough eating…time to sing yourselves healthy!!

Happy New Year to all! Preparations for a stunning concert on 16th May in Arundel Cathedral are now well underway...the Cathedral is booked, the artwork is ready, and Graham will soon start booking the soloists and orchestra.  All that is needed now is to start learning Messiah!! We welcome you all back to our first rehearsal on Wednesday 8th January.  Please do bring along anyone who may be interested in singing with us.  We are particularly keen to meet new Sopranos and Tenors but really everyone would be made very welcome.  We already know of a few new people coming to try out our choir and we know you'll make them feel very welcome!

Well done everyone – what a FAB concert!! But…where is all the hired music?!

Yesterday's concert was such a joy - so lovely to see a full church at St Mary's and so many happy faces!  Firstly a message from our esteemed Musical Director: Wow! What a great concert! It is definitely the best Christmas concert yet. There was some very tricky music and you really pulled it off. The sound throughout the concert was really good, from both full blooded fortes to the quiet sensitive moments. The brass were fantastic too, adding their touch of festive cheer. A really lovely concert all round. Thank you so much for all your hard work. It’s hugely appreciated and I hope that you are feeling a sense of satisfaction of a great job well done – you should! Well done to all. Have a great Christmas and New Year! PS don’t forget to invite friends / colleagues / family to join us in January.
