These take place each Thursday evening, from 7 to 9 pm, at St Dennis Working Men’s Club, PL26 8AD. Our performances require a good deal of preparation to get up to the standards we pride ourselves upon, and we expect members to keep that evening for the Choir if at all possible. The spirit of the Choir depends upon the loyalty between members, and this is also reinforced by the get-togethers in the Club after each practice finishes. Please do join us for the rehearsal and for the ‘afterglow’.
Sheet music of all the pieces is provided, and members mark them according to the Musical Director’s directions for the fine tuning of the performance.
See our ‘Joining’ page for information about joining the Choir.
The Committee meets once a month to deal with events and developments, and to build our programme of concerts. They are usually held at Leek Seed Chapel, St Blazey Gate, or at Nanpean Chapel. The agenda is published in advance of each meeting and the minutes afterwards.
The Ladies’ Committee also has regular meetings, where they plan the fund-raising and support activities by which they make a vital and substantial contribution to the Choir’s funds and well-being. Their regular Christmas Draw is made in December and their stand at Sticker Rally raised a substantial amount even in this post-Covid year.
At intervals the Ladies’ Committee have organised teas and other social events for the Choir members and their families, most recently on the resumption of practices after the lockdown for Covid-19.
