Marlborough Community Choir is starting again after its summer break and welcomes all singers, women and men, including those who have been told they can’t sing and are ready to question whether that is true. The choir’s autumn term starts on Wednesday 7th Sept, at St. Peter’s Church, Marlborough, from 7.30pm – 9pm. The 1st session of each term is a taster session which you can go along to for free to see if you feel comfortable with the group and would like to join the choir. If you can’t make the taster session and would like to come along later that can easily be arranged. It’s a chance to try a new activity this autumn.
The choir sings a wide range of music (classical, folk, jazz, gospel, musical theatre, pop & world music) and there are plenty of practice resources available to support choir members; there is no need to be able to read music as everything is taught by ear.
The Choir was relaunched in Nov 2021 with its new leader – local musician Emma Pooley. The choir remains true to its original principles and provides a non-judgemental, friendly environment in which people of all voice types come together to enjoy singing in harmony.
Emma pointed out “Marlborough Community Choir is not primarily a performance choir, but we do some performance, especially for local community causes”. In June, the choir was pleased to sing for the lighting of the Platinum Jubilee beacon, and to take part in a ‘Sing-a-thon’ helping to raise £1,597.00 for the Great Western Hospital CT Scanner. The choir is now looking forward to joining Phoenix Brass and the Marlborough Accordion Orchestra for a Christmas Concert in Marlborough Town Hall on 11th December.
