Come and Sing Elijah this Saturday 1st February

Elijah posterHave you always fancied singing Mendelssohn’s Elijah or revisiting it if you’ve sung it before? Or perhaps you’re interested in joining a choir but not sure what it would be like.

Whatever the reason, singers of all ages and abilities are welcome at our Come and Sing day, when we will learn and then perform Mendelssohn’s Elijah for our friends and family – all in a single day!

These workshops are relaxed and fun, and most of those around you will either have never sung the piece before or at least not recently, so we’ll all be in the same boat.

Tickets are £20 or £10 for under 30’s and include refreshments and music hire. For more information and to book online, click here.

We’re running a free singing workshop on Wednesday 8th January from 7.30pm – 9.30pm at Trinity Methodist Church, Woking so why not give us a try? The workshop will be run by our very own assistant musical director and professional bass baritone, Laurence Williams.

Singers of all ages, abilities and voice parts welcome. All you need to bring is yourself plus 50p for a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit at the break halfway through the rehearsal. You can also contact us if you have any other questions. We look forward to seeing you there.

Thank you: Over £1100 raised for York Road Project so far

Thank you to everyone who has attended one of our concerts this season and helped us to raise over £1100 for the York Road Project!

This year, we have selected a charity to support for the whole year so we aim to significantly increase this total with our performance of The Armed Man by Karl Jenkins in March 2020 and our Broadway Review concert in June. We look forward to seeing you there. For more information about our upcoming concerts, visit the Future concerts page on our website.

Come and Sing: Mendelssohn’s Elijah

Saturday 1st February 2020, 11am – 5pm
Trinity Methodist Church, Woking

This year’s Come and Sing day features Mendelssohn’s masterpiece, Elijah. With rousing choruses vividly portraying this biblical tale, these workshops are always extremely popular and enjoyable.

Members of the choir will be joined by singers of all voice types, ages and abilities from the Woking area to learn and perform Elijah in a single day. We’d love you to join us – we’ll even bring cakes!

We’ll kick off with some warm-ups and then start getting familiar with the piece led by our conductor, Michael. We will have regular breaks for tea, coffee and cakes throughout the day and a longer break for lunch. Michael will also tell us a bit more about the piece and the composer to put the piece in context.

At the end of the afternoon (around 4pm), we will then put on an informal ‘performance’ of everything we’ve learned for any of our friends and family who would like to come and listen.

Score hire and refreshments will be included in the ticket price, which is £20 or £10 for under 30’s, available using the button below or on the door.
