CHOIRS AT ST. EDWARD'S CHURCH
The choir of St. Edwards has enjoyed many successful years of singing Anglican church music to a very high standard locally and further afield.
We are currently recruiting singers, choristers and adults, to re-build our choir post-pandemic.
Why Sing Or Make Music?
Because we enjoy it and it’s fun. There are lots of benefits in singing and making music. Expression is one of fundamental aspects of being human and music is an international language which we can all share and understand each other in.
Singing in a choir can develop your musicianship, reading and singing skills and aural ability. It enables us to be part of a team that sings various styles of music in different settings. It brings together like minded people where friendship can be made.
Singing at St. Edwards
Choristers – Boys and girls from around the age of seven are encouraged to join as a chorister after an initial informal “singing session” with the Director of Music.
Adults – All voice types, soprano, alto, tenor and bass are welcome to meet the Choral Director for an informal conversation.
