Chris said: “It’s a new academic year, and a lot of people are looking for a new challenge.
“Are you one of those people who think they can’t sing? I believe everyone can.
On Thursday September 22, the St Paul’s Choir will hold a public rehearsal.
“This is intended to give the congregation and others further afield a brief glimpse into what is going on in our choral practices.
“People are welcome to come watch or even participate and sing along, no pressure.”
“Adults can come at 7 p.m. and children who wish to participate can join us at 6:15 p.m.
“There are staff and volunteers fully vetted by DBS.
“We have been fortunate that our choir continues to grow, and it has done so during the pandemic.
“Practices and quizzes have been taking place remotely during the Covid period, and I know for some and me it was an essential lifeline to say hello and chat on Zoom.
“I think people will see that the choir is a rewarding part of our church life and not just making music at the highest level possible, but also enjoying the company of others.
“Actually, that last piece is just as important to me: the social aspect of it all, looking out for each other and caring for each other.
“There are no age restrictions. Children join around the age of six or seven, and there is no limit at the higher end of the scale. Thank you for coming Thursday, September 22.
“Parents are welcome to see their children participate, and it could lead to a rewarding new hobby.”
The choir leads the church each Sunday and embraces a wide variety of musical traditions. Men, women and children are all welcome to join us for practice every Thursday, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the church and from 9:30 to 10 a.m. every Sunday at the parish center.
