The Story So far ....
Our founding members, Ann Johnson and Phillippa Mulholland identified a need for a weekday, evening community choir for the local area and surrounding villages of Frodsham. After some research on venue and advertising for interest, our first rehearsal took place on 7th October 2019, with 27 people attending. Just 10 weeks after the choir was initiated, we performed our first family and friends’ concert. Over 60 people came to join in the fun and celebration.
The following March 2020 saw Covid19 send the whole country into lockdown and sadly physical rehearsals had to be cancelled. The choir continued on Zoom for a while hosting sing along sessions, quiz competitions and even produced two virtual harmonised tracks with the help of our then Musical Director, Zena Philippou.
As the country emerged from lockdown, Zena had to take on additional commitments with the school where she works and is therefore no longer our MD. In June 2021 we began outdoor rehearsals at the Arts Centre in Castle Park Frodsham in line with Covid guidelines and welcomed our new MD Joseph Mann. As a Musical Director Joe has written a number of original musicals and brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with us.
In July 2021 we returned to indoor rehearsals at Main Street Community Church in Frodsham Cheshire but have retained some of the Covid safety measures. We have already put together an exciting repertoire and are increasing our numbers. Our membership is open to all singing abilities, there are no auditions and you don’t need to be able to read music ... just love singing!
