Choral Society offers FREE Singing Experience!
Date posted: 05-08-2012
FOLLOWING on from the success of its singing courses over the past three years, Thurrock Choral Society has announced that the next singing course takes place this autumn, beginning on Wednesday 12th September for 10 weeks at Grays Parish Church Hall.
Again the society has been able to offer this experience completely free and welcomes applications from any would-be singers in the Thurrock area – or beyond. There are no auditions – and complete beginners are welcome.
More information and the application form (which can either be submitted online or downloaded) can be found on the TCS website: www.thurrockchoralsociety.org.uk
The weekly sessions take place from 7.30pm – 9.30pm (with a coffee break!) every Wednesday until 14th November 2012 – the choir will then perform the works learnt at its Autumn Concert on Saturday 17th November 2012 at 7pm at Grays Parish Church.
This concert will also be free, as TCS wishes to attract as wide an audience as possible to hear some inspirational choral music written by such wonderful composers as Haydn and Fauré. Sandra Wilkes, the society’s chairperson says: ’We are very keen for any would-be singers to join us for this unique experience – it is completely free – and we are a friendly bunch. We also wish to dispel the idea that this music is elitist and only for the minority.
“The first session on 12th September is a ‘dip your toe in the water’ session – people are under no obligation to continue, but we hope that they do!’
The society is grateful that the whole experience – including the concert on 17th November 2012 has been made possible by the support of Thurrock Council – which like the society wants to continue to enhance the musical heritage and diversity of the borough. So it is hoped that this partnership will provide a new experience for any Thurrock residents who might not have sung since school days – or perhaps never before – as TCS says, come and dip your toe in the water – you might enjoy it!
