Calling all singers!
If you love choral music, if you love singing, if you’ve just moved to the Suffolk and want to continue singing with a good choir, if you’ve never sung in a choir before but enjoy music, or can read music, or any combination of these, your time is now!
The Bury Bach Choir will start rehearsals for our November concert on Wednesday 5 September at King Edward VI School in Bury St Edmunds. We’ll be singing Vaughan Williams’ haunting Dona Nobis Pacem, which is new to the choir, and Duruflé’s Requiem, which the choir last sang in 2014. Later in the year we will sing Bach’s St Matthew Passion and Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas.
All you need to do is contact Linda, our New Members’ Secretary (see below), come along to two or three rehearsals to see if you like us, and if you want to join, you’ll be asked to do a short and simple voice check (no audition pieces, just scales and aural tests) with our Music Director, Philip Reed, mainly to ensure you sing in the correct section for your voice.
We’re a friendly lot, with singers of all ages with busy lives – what brings us together is our love of singing, our enjoyment of the music and our desire to be the best we can be. Our singing year is September to June, and we give four concerts a year at venues including The Apex, St Edmundsbury Cathedral, St Mary’s Church and Lavenham Church.
Find out more from our website here, or contact our New Members’ Secretary, Linda Cleveley, on 01284 703348 or 07757 316553, or email@example.com. We’ve already had several enquiries for this year, so you won’t be alone, and you will be very welcome!
