There are no auditions and basic support is given to new members who need help to read music. We are a very friendly group and new members are always made welcome.

The Choir sings a wide range  of music including  musical theatre songs,  traditional songs, classical pieces and sacred music, 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.

Please see the Group Posts below for a blog giving details of some of our past activities.

Christmas 2019 – Advent Service

Our U3A Choir are already rehearsing for the Advent Service on Thursday 5th December at Christ Church at 10.30 am.  All are warmly invited to join us to mark the beginning of the Christmas season.  This will be an opportunity to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas and to have a good sing!  Last year we asked for donations for the Ormskirk Food Bank and members were very generous.  This year we will be once again be asking for donations as, sadly, there is a pressing need for emergency food rations for families within the area.   Please bring donations of basic foodstuffs with you to church, they will be gratefully accepted.

At the end of December choir will be singing at Springfield and Ince Blundell Nursing Homes.  This has now become a Christmas tradition for us and it is lovely to see familiar faces.

Autumn 2018

 

Celebrating the U3A’s 15th birthday

The autumn of 2018 was a busy time for our choir.  We sang at Springfield and Ince Blundell Nursing Homes, took  part in the U3A 15th birthday celebrations and organised the U3A Advent service in Christ Church.  Members of the congregation brought contributions for the Ormskirk food bank and we all shared in the real meaning of Christmas.
