If you are or were a singer, and think you might enjoy a new group, or if you’ve ever thought you might like to sing but feared an audition or being embarrassed by lack of musical knowledge, come and give us a try. We welcome everyone. There are no auditions and some of us don’t read music, but we all sing, socialise and enjoy ourselves. All rehearsals are “open”. You would be most welcome to come along to see (and hear) what goes on, and to join in if you wish.

The Choir sings a wide variety of music from musicals to traditional songs to classical pieces, the overall aim being to give all members the enjoyment and benefits of choral singing. We normally have two or three events during the year.

The next choir concert, ‘Enchanted Evening’, will be held at Aughton Village Hall at 7:30 pm on Friday, April 20th. It will include music from the shows as well as Captain Noah’s Floating Zoo, and we are delighted that Susan Black will again be joining us as one of our soloists. Further details will be published in the enews and here on the Choir Group webpage. Tickets £5  from Horizons or ring 01704841085.
