In the news... 60th Anniversary

The choir are in their 60th year of music making…

Here are excerpts from the recent anniversary article in the Braintree & Witham Times:

Local Historian, Janet Gyford has a photo from 1974 when Tom Langley was the Conductor. You can see it by following this link Click Here. If you can name anyone we are not sure about, do please get in touch and let us know!

New members always welcome!

We are always looking for new members to swell our ranks for the next season of concerts. If you have a desire to sing we would be delighted to see you. If you are under 26 your membership is completely free!

We rehearse at 7.45pm in the United Reformed Church, Witham (in Newland Street) every Tuesday evening in term time and we always have time for a sociable chat over a cup of tea or coffee at half-time. Once a month we hold a fund-raising bring and buy stall.

We hope to see you soon!

We are currently rehearsing for our next performance at Witham United Public Hall – a concert of Opera favourites with Colchester Bach Orchestra.

London Concert Trips

Join us on our regular concert trips to London venues; principally the Barbican and the Royal Festival Hall.

All are very welcome to come on these trips which are extremely good value and provide some very popular musical treats. The price of the trip includes the luxury coach fee with pick-ups at Stanway, Copford, Coggeshall, Kelvedon, Witham, Hatfield Peverel, Great Baddow and Mountnessing.

This seasons list is very exciting, see the list below with dates for 2019.

Sunday matinees usually tend to get filled up. If you haven’t been before why not give it a try? They are great value – you won’t get it as cheaply independently. We usually get there with time to explore the Southbank with their wonderful food festival so it makes a good day out.

Click on the Concert list 2018/19 at the bottom of this section to see the full list of forthcoming concerts, and full details of the trips.

Thank you for your support! Best wishes, Clare
