Stanmore Choral Society

 

Sadly our next planned event will not be going ahead due to the pandemic. We were planning a concert including “Mozart – Coronation Mass and Ave Verum” on Saturday 4th April 2020 at 7.00pm

 

 

All 2020 rehearsals have now been suspended and will not resume until further notice and therefore the 27th June event is unlikely to go ahead.

When we start rehearsals again do just come along and join us. We may continue rehearsing Mozart – Coronation Mass and Ave Verum – as well as Haydn and Durante.
You do not need to read music, but you do need to be able to follow a four-part score. There is a lot of help to learn the music, both in rehearsals and online, and you will get a warm welcome.

Please stay safe and all good wishes to everyone.

New Year’s Resolution: JOIN A CHOIR! 

There are lots of reasons to sing in a choir, apart from enjoying the music.

Singing is known to release endorphins, the feel-good brain chemical that makes you feel uplifted and happy. In addition, scientists have identified a tiny organ in the ear called the sacculus, which responds to the frequencies created by singing. The response creates an immediate sense of pleasure, regardless of what the singing sounds like. Not only that, but singing can simply take your mind off the day’s troubles to boost your mood. So, why not come along and give it a try.

                                          *************************
