Singing is great fun, and various studies have shown that singing music is very good for our mental and physical health and well-being.
The Community Choir at Alfrick (formerly 'The Benefice Choir') is a fun all-welcome mixed-voice group of between 30 and 40 singers, founded by Madeline Brewin, which meets on Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm UK time, normally at the Fox and Hounds Pub in Lulsley, West Worcestershire, WR6 5QT. There are no auditions, and you don't need to read music.
IMPORTANT: During the COVID-19 pandemic we've moved online! See our rehearsal schedule for details.
If you'd like to sing, just come along and try us out for a session. (It's worth checking our rehearsal schedule first, or phone Keith on 07771 600 776 if unsure. For the online sessions during lockdown, contact us well in advance of a session, and we'll put you on the guest list.)
We have a professional accompanist and professionally trained conductor, but our sessions aren't expensive, and are actually free during the COVID-19 pandemic period. The sessions, which are great fun, nornally run for approximately 70-75 minutes without a break. (During lockdown we have 30-40 minute online sessions, followed by a group discussion.)
In addition to having a good time at our practice sessions, we also provide a service to the local community, singing at various functions, including concerts, garden parties, presentations, revues and at the occasional church service.
