The North Somerset Good Afternoon Choir will perform their first concert of the year at Nailsea Methodist Church next month.
The concert will take place on Saturday evening April 2 at 7:30 p.m.
The choir is led by Ruth Jenkins, with more than 70 members, who are busy preparing their program for the concert which will support the Springboard Opportunity Group, a charity chosen by the members of the choir.
The Good Afternoon Choirs were started by Bath-based Grenville Jones 12 years ago and there are now 19 in the South West of England with over 800 ‘Singing in the Afternoon’ members.
There are no auditions to join and members of the North Somerset Good Afternoon Choir come from the area and surrounding areas. They meet every Wednesday afternoon from 1-3pm at Nailsea Methodist Church.
Everyone is invited to come and meet Ruth and the members of the choir.
The concert’s special guest will be solo violinist Lizz Lipscombe.
His high-profile moments in previous years include performances and recordings with Smokey Robinson, Richard Hawley, Newton Faulkner and Peter Gabriel, as well as live gigs on BBC Radio 2 with Bob Harris and on TV for Songs of Praise and Later. . . . with Jools Holland.
Tickets cost £10 and are on sale from members of the North Somerset Good Afternoon Choir on 01761 472468 or at the door.
Ruth said: “It will be a great night of music and of course it will be the first time the North Somerset Good Afternoon Choir have performed at a public concert in over two years.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be singing again.”
