Coronavirus precautions

Rhythm and Counting workshop on Monday March 23rd

*** THIS EVENT IS NOW POSTPONED DUE TO CORONA VIRUS RESTRICTIONS ***

Private singing lessons are continuing as usual. If you feel unwell please contact Joyce to cancel/postpone. When attending for your lesson please wait to be let in (no earlier than 5 mins before your lesson is due to start) so you don’t have to touch door-handles etc. You may prefer to bring your own bottle of water and pencil.

Birkenhead Choral Society

The Choir are looking forward to a Voice Training session with Joyce Tindsley this coming Monday, March 16th.

It is a rare opportunity to focus on improving our singing. many of us have been singing for many years, some not so long, but there is little doubt that Joyce will teach most of us something new (or perhaps remind us of something we have forgotten!), which will help us to sing better as a group.

This event has been cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions

Reminder 23rd March 2020

A quick reminder that my next workshop is coming up on 23rd March and there are a few places left.
We will be working on Rhythm and Counting and, as usual, there will also be the opportunity for you to sing a pre-prepared solo if you wish.
All exercise sheets etc, plus lunch and tea and coffee throughout the day are provided.
The ability to read music is not essential. The class is open to all abilities and will be informal and friendly.

Thank you to everyone who came to our ‘Come and Sing’ day today and made it such a great success. Lovely to welcome new faces too. What a pleasure to work on and sing such a #thrilling work of art.

Thankyou to all the team at Lytham St. Annes Choral Society for making the day run so smoothly especially our refreshments team who kept the tea and coffee flowing all day.

Special thanks to our team of music professionals; Joyce Tindsley mezzo-soprano for such expert vocal coaching, Graham Jackson with his towering musicianship and fantastic orchestral piano playing and our own Music Director Helen Harrison Conductor whose knowledge and love for all things Elgar shone through the day.

For more than 275 years, George Frideric Handel’s compelling and richly varied Messiah has held a unique place in the affections of music lovers across the world.

Its greatest choruses – such as the instantly recognisable Hallelujah and For unto us a Child is Born – are among the most popular pieces of music ever written.

During the London premiere of Messiah in 1743, King George II is said to have risen to his feet during the Hallelujah – a tradition that is continued around the world today.

Performing with the 150 members of Worcester Festival Choral Society will be the Meridian Sinfonia period orchestra.
