A new Afternoon Choir is launching in Swindon

Recognised as one of the leaders in choral singing, Bath-based, Grenville Jones will be restarting and launching a number of new choirs across the West of England in the weeks ahead.

Said Grenville; We certainly have not been idle during these last few months and plans are in place. My popular Good Afternoon Choirs in Devizes, Wells, Keynsham and Bath as well as South Gloucestershire, Frome, Yeovil, Bristol, Thornbury, North Somerset and Yate and Chipping Sodbury were all forced to stop. They will all restart (as detailed below) with the addition of nine new Good Afternoon Choirs for folks in Cheltenham, Swindon, Cirencester and Stroud, Salisbury, Taunton, Cheddar Valley, Truro and Falmouth.

In addition Grenville's two evening choirs, the celebrated Bath Male Choir and his Bath Welcome Chorus mixed-voice choir of over 100 voices will begin rehearsals again in early September. 'It's been such a hard time for the members of our choirs who have desperately missed the singing and social friendships, but at last, we can look forward to being together again, singing, smiling and planning concerts which will support many local organisations and charities, adds Grenville.

We introduced Zoom rehearsals as well as popular YouTube sofa singing during 2020/2021, but it?s just wonderful to be back ?live? again.? There are no auditions required to join Grenville's Good Afternoon Choirs. The accent is clearly on enjoyment through music together and making new friends. Over 800 people sang in the choir?s that were forced to close last March.

The Good Afternoon Choirs Wells Good Afternoon Choir will be moving to a new venue at St Thomas Church and starting back on Tuesday August 17 with Grenville leading and accompanist Sheila Ross. Keynsham Good Afternoon Choir will start back on Wednesday August 18 with Grenville at the new venue of St Johns / Keynsham Parish Church with Sandie Middleton as accompanist. The new Swindon Good Afternoon Choir will launch on Thursday August 26 with John Sandford and an open rehearsal at Freshbrook Church.

The new Salisbury Good Afternoon Choir will launch with an open rehearsal at Salisbury United Reformed Church on Friday August 27 with Andy Brockway as conductor.
