Singing Rehearsals begin on Thursday 8th September.
We meet at 7.30 p.m. at the Methodist Church, Brunswick Road, Shoreham-by-Sea.
This term we will be rehearsing for our Christmas Concert. The main work will be 'Ceremony of Carols' by Britten. There will be a number of other carols included. However we intend to include a new carol - 'Sleep, my Jesu' - written by Jamie Hall freely available to choirs in return for a donation to Macmillan Cancer Support.
At the beginning of term we will be singing 'The Heaven's are Telling' from Haydn's 'Creation'. So a very busy term is planned.

Why Gift Aid is important to us.

When you pay your subscriptions, a percentage (25%) can be claimed back from HMRC if you are a UK tax payer.

We have to hold records of those people that wish to allow their subscriptions to be 'Gift Aided'. Please download and print a form or ask the choir's treasurer for a copy.
