Formed in September 2012 by Emma Trounson, All Saints Children’s Choir are young choristers, boys and girls aged 7+ (or mature 5+) who rehearse on Wednesdays 4.45pm-6.15pm at the church. They sing a variety of mainly sacred music in unison or 2-part harmony. They join with the adult choir once a month for Sunday services and perform as a separate group for other services and concerts. The choristers learn to read music and use their voices well to sing in tune and in harmony. They follow the RSCM ‘Voice for Life’ Medal Scheme. There is no audition and its free to join!
Established 40 years ago, the adult choir contributes regularly to Sunday worship, leading the singing at Parish Communion, and monthly Choral Evensong and Sung Eucharist services as well special services. Its repertoire is varied, drawing on many musical styles and periods, but particularly the richness of the Anglican Choral Tradition. Anyone interested in singing is welcome to come to a Friday evening rehearsal 6.15pm-7.45pm. No experience or sight-reading skill is required and there are no auditions.
