Come and Sing in Harmony Success!
The recent invitation for men in the Thames Valley area to come and learn to sing in harmony with us was a great success, with around 20 joining for the course. It seems that a number of them were so impressed with what they were able to achieve that they are still joining us on a Tuesday evening, with a view to becoming members of the chorus.
If you missed the opportunity to join the Come and Sing in Harmony course in January, then feel free to join us for our normal rehearsals on a Tuesday evening, or keep checking back for details of our next course.
