Sing Your Heart Out Choir have just returned from our Christmas break, and are busily preparing for our next concert in March.

In October, we joined the U3A ukulele group ‘Crazy for Uke’ for a concert to raise money for the ‘loo fund’ for St Andrew’s Church in Holcombe. The evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all, and a repeat event is already planned for October this year!

The Christmas period was as busy as ever, and saw the choir carol singing at various venues and events, including Whitehaven Care Home in Westfield, the Memory Café at St John’s Church and Christmas fairs at Radstock Museum and St Vigor and St John’s Primary Schools. The singers also enjoyed providing entertainment at the Farmborough Floral Arts Group’s Christmas party, and joining with the Mendip Brass Band for the candlelit carol service at St John’s Church in Chilcompton.

Sing Your Heart Out’s next concert is on Saturday, 3rd March at Midsomer Norton Methodist Church. We are fundraising for Beat, a charity close to the choir’s heart, which provides support for eating disorder sufferers and their loved ones. We’ll be performing popular songs from Abba, Queen, Dolly Parton, Adele and many more. For tickets, please call: 01761 232490 or 01761 233461.

We will always welcome new members – no need to be able to read music, and no auditions – just lots of enthusiasm required! For more information on joining, please call Viv Moon on: 01761 232490 / 07780 861868 or Eugenie Hailston on: 01761 411909. Similarly, if you’d like us to sing at an event you are arranging, please do get in touch.
