Local community choir Stokes Singers are looking for male singers to boost their bass/tenor/baritone section.
“We need additional male singers to join our staunch men’s team and ‘pump up the volume’ of our performances. There are also spaces for a few more altos, but we currently have a full complement of sopranos.”
“We welcome singers of all levels, including beginners, so if you’re a bit nervous, don’t worry because you learn as a group to get the right notes when we rehearse.”
The choir, at present 35 strong, meets at 7.30pm every Thursday at Coniston Community Centre, Patchway. There are no auditions and the only requirement is the ability to sing in tune. Rehearsals are relaxed and great fun with a mid-session break for tea and chat.
Stokes Singers hold two concerts each year, singing popular songs of all kinds, raising funds for various charities, as well as performing at other events.
Singing is a great way to relax and meet people. So, after a long hard days at work, singing will help take your mind off all the politics, deadlines and problems that seem to take over your life!
It’s also great being able to invite your friends and family to concerts – nothing beats the feeling at the end of the concert though when the baton goes down and the audience erupts in applause. It’s a great sense of achievement and one of the best feelings you’ll ever have.
Choir membership is only £2.75 per week, but the first two weeks are free, so if you would like to come along to give it a try please call Liz on 01454 614148 or make contact via the website: www.stokessingers.org.uk
