Wellington Choral Society is holding two Evening Workshops for anyone who would like to give choral singing a go and, in addition, be involved in a special Remembrance event in November. Malcolm Hair, i/c publicity for the Choral Society, explains:
“Do you like to sing – even if only in the shower? Not sung since school and curious as to whether you still can? Or are you a seasoned Workshopper?
“Wellington Choral Society, a non-auditioned choir, is holding two Evening Workshops on Wednesdays, 6 & 13 June 2018 – £5 per session – from 7.30pm (doors open 6.30 pm) to 9.30 pm at Wellington Methodist Church, Waterloo Road, Wellington TA21 8JQ.
“If you have ever thought about giving choral singing a go, or would just like to explore the possibility, why not book your place and get a feel for the Society and the music. The ability to read music is not essential.”
Further details about the Society and a Workshop booking form can be found on their website www.wellingtonchoralsociety.org.uk or contact Sue Ryan, Secretary on 01823 619443.
Duruflé’s Requiem is one of the Workshop pieces and will form one half of the Choral Society’s 24 November Concert “Remembrance – 100 Years”. This will also include a selection of other choral, organ and spoken works around the theme of Remembrance encompassing the last 100 years and all branches of the Armed Services.
The Society’s Chair, Mike Maddock, said, “We wanted to reflect not only on the end of the First World War but also on the sacrifice of all the Armed Services since that time through the music and prose. ‘We Will Remember Them’ promises to be a very memorable evening”.
