New Room Community Choir end of term concert

Thursday 21st June
5.30 – 6.30pm

Come and watch the New Room Community Choir celebrate the end of the summer term in a free concert.  They will be showcasing all the great songs they have sung this term.  With a varied repertoire there will be songs from the Sound of Music to a traditional Swedish folk song and everything in between.

The New Room Community Choir started in January 2018.  The choir meets weekly during term time on a Wednesday lunchtime 12.15 – 1pm.  Anyone can drop by and join in.  Members do not have to audition, read music and it is free. With a varied repertoire of pop, folk, rock, jazz, blues and gospel, and open to requests, the New Room Community Choir hopes to bring people together through singing.

For choir leaders, Rose and Judit, the idea of the New Room Community Choir is to create a relaxed space to enjoy singing together and have fun learning new songs.
