Wessex Male Choir is looking for new members to join its ranks and is holding a number of open rehearsals and mini concerts throughout Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire.
Sessions will be held in:
– Cricklade United Church on 19 October
– Cirencester Baptist Church on 23 November
Anyone is welcome to come along, there is no need to book, and the open rehearsals will include a ‘mini concert’ by the choir so you can see the guys perform. The evenings will give potential members the opportunity to meet the choristers in an informal setting and afterwards have a chat over a drink at a local hostelry.
Wessex Male Choir performs at venues throughout the UK including the prestigious Westminster Central Hall in London. Earlier this year the choir also went on tour to Devon and sang at Buckfast Abbey and the Plymouth Guildhall. The choir has also had success on the competitive stage and was awarded the "Best Male Choir" and "Best Ensemble" at Bath’s Mid Somerset music festival in April.
Next year also promises to be an exciting time for the choir as it has had the honour of being invited to take part in the 2011 International Eisteddfod and we will begin preparing for this event from September 2010.
So this is the perfect time for new members to join us!
