Kingston Choral Society ‘Choruses & Cake’, Poulenc’s Gloria – Singing Workshop Led by Gavin Roberts…
As the Christmas holidays end, it’s time to try something new. What better than joining a local choir? Kingston Choral Society first rehearsal of the new year is at 8pm on Thursday 4th January 2024 – at our rehearsal venue, The Hollyfield School Surbiton. It’s easily accessible by bus and car, and less than 5 minutes walk from Surbiton Station. We’re always looking for new members, especially tenor and bass voices.
Singing together is a brilliant tonic for physical and mental health. If you think that choral singing is not for you, think again. It rapidly becomes addictive. Our 100+ members include men and women of all ages from 20 to nearly 90. Some are lifelong singers, while others decided to give it a whirl with no previous experience. We’re a sociable bunch, organising pub visits, walks and quizzes. A recent joiner described her first evening singing with us as “Friendly, fun, & really exhilarating!”
On 4 January we start rehearsing for our next concert on March 16th. This will be the welcome return to Kingston of dramatic showstopper – Mendelssohn’s magnificent Elijah – and the season finale on June 22nd is a celebration of the stunning music of Henry Purcell.
We will also be holding a Come & Sing :Poulenc Gloria on Thursday 21st March 2024 – absolutely everyone is welcome to come along and enjoy a special evening of singing and cake!
To be part of it, come along and give us a try. For more information, check out Kingstonchoralsociety.org.uk/kcs/
