Deciding on a New Year’s resolution? Why not join our choir – Stokes Singers?

Stokes Singers are recruiting new members in January 2020, so why not come along and give us a try? asks choir member Gillian Rowles.

Rehearsals are lots of fun and members get a real uplifting feel from singing with the group. We are a 3/4 part harmony group singing a wide range of music from swing, gospel, pop, show and folk songs, with the occasional large choral piece. You don’t need to be able to read music and the first two rehearsals are free of charge whilst you get to know your fellow singers.

Just in case you are not aware of your voice pitch, an assessment will ensure you are happily placed in the correct section of the choir. Please come along and try us out as your New Year’s resolution. It’s lots of fun with our two musical directors Sian and Phil putting us through our paces. Weekly rehearsals are held on Thursdays at Coniston Community Centre, Coniston Road, Patchway BS34 5LP [map], where there is plenty of parking available.

Perhaps you would kindly call or text Gillian on 07790 909726 prior to coming along so that you can be welcomed at the door? Rehearsals are 7.15pm for 7.30pm start and finish at 9.30pm.

To give you a idea of our performances, in December we staged ‘A Not so Silent Christmas’ Christmas concert in aid of The Teenage Cancer Trust and also entertained at the Frenchay Brain Rehabilitation Centre Cancer Trust to assist in raising funds. We hope that we can welcome you to perform at our concert in the summer. Please give us a try and we look forward to meeting you.
