School Community Choir - The Phoenix Singers
Phoenix Singers: An Invitation
Sunday 7.30-9.00 Term Time only, September-May
Phoenix are a wonderful choir: friendly, fun and they make a great sound....all non audition, and it’s the best time to join them to be able to participate in our two yearly concerts, and enjoy a year’s singing together. The choir is made up of old scholars, parents and friends of the school. We work towards supporting the two main concerts that the school performs each year - the Christmas Carol Concert (Nine Lessons and Carols) in the cathedral, and a summer concert in recent years held in various venues in May. We ask for a small donation each week (£1 per person) to cover expenses.
We learn carols, old and new, to sing in Gloucester Cathedral on December 2nd with the whole school, which is stunning and gives us spine-tingling moments to remember. Our Summer ‘event’ this year on May 5th is ‘Zimbe’ a lively African piece in our own school hall, with a 5 piece jazz band and dancing! This is in aid of our little sister school ‘The Acacia Tree’ run by Tom and Madeleine Muller in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
It will be fun, moving and at times just amazing, so, if you’ve been thinking about it, come along.
First choir is Sunday 11th September after school has begun.
See you there!
