Sessions to begin Tuesday 7 November
Chiswick’s performing arts school, ArtsEd, has announced plans to form a community choir, the proceeds of which will be channelled towards the ArtsEd bursary fund to support the university’s students. The initiative is designed to bring music lovers together for a bit of fun, while supporting the next generation of artists.
The community choir will meet every Tuesday, starting from 7 November until 5 December. The sessions will run from 7.00pm to 8.30pm.
Participants can look forward to ‘engaging rehearsals led by experienced vocal coaches, expert guidance, and the culmination of the programme in a live performance’.
The five-week experience will cost £12 (or £3 per session).
ArtsEd has run a community choir before, along the lines of the Rock Choir, with a repertoire of popular hits rather than choral works or classical numbers. The major benefit of joining an ArtsEd choir is the experience of the choir master, as all their tutors have West End experience.
“It was really good fun. No one took it too seriously and we had a real laugh” said one former participant.
