Amazing to think it’s only a year ago that Jules, Lesley-Anne & Felicity had a meeting in a coffee shop in Pewsey to see if we could put a choir together, having no idea if it would take off or not. On our first meeting we had 11 ladies turn up, some had been involved in choirs previously and some had never sung in a choir.
To make sure the ladies were at ease we chose not to hold auditions. We wanted to get a group of ladies together who were interested in singing and who were keen to commit to meeting once a week. The majority of the ladies who came to our first session in 2011 are still with us which is great and of course we are delighted so many more have joined us since. Some are a little camera shy but we are hopeful they will eventually submit a photograph of themselves to join the gallery!
Here we are a year on with 30 ladies in the choir! We’ve learnt a variety of songs and slowly our audio show reel is coming together. We are looking forward to 2012, recording some more demo tracks, performing at more events and to the choir growing stronger.
We are now busy practicing for our forthcoming events – one of which is Jules’s wedding in April – it will be the ladies turn to make sure he does what he is told!
If you or indeed you know of someone who would like to join the choir please do point them to our website and ask them to get in touch.
