Please see the Group Posts below for a blog giving details of our 2021 Advent Celebration in early December and some of our past activities.
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 comers are always made welcome.
The Choir sings a wide range of music including musical theatre, traditional, classical, popular and sacred, 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.
We are pleased to announce that the 2021 Advent Celebration will take place in Christ Church on Thursday 2nd December at 11 am. Rehearsals have been going well and we hope that you will join us once again to welcome the Christmas season. Do come along and join the Choir and the Recorder groups for a good Christmas sing.
Appeal… If you are coming to the Advent Celebration on 2nd December, the Ormskirk Food Bank would be extremely grateful for donations which you can leave at the back of the church.
Our U3A Choir gave a sincere and heartfelt Advent Performance on Thursday 5th Decemberat Christ Church which marked the beginning of the Christmas season. It was an opportunity to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas and to have a good sing! Once again we asked for donations for the Ormskirk Food Bank and members were very generous. The Recorder Group also performed at this event.
At the end of December, the choir also sang at Aughton Park and Ince Blundell Nursing Homes where we were very warmly welcomed. This is now a Christmas tradition for us and it is lovely to see familiar faces. Sadly, Christmas saw the retirement of our Musical Director, Duncan Roberts. We said a fond farewell to him and wish him all the best for the future.
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.
