St Andrew’s Choir
There is a long established musical tradition at St Andrew’s which is maintained by the choir. Numerous children have received musical training in the choir, and in recent years six have received the RSCM Gold Award, an outstanding achievement. There is a bursary fund through which they can qualify for help with the cost of music lessons and attendance at RSCM training events. New members are always welcome, and no previous knowledge or experience is necessary. Choir practice is on Fridays.
The Carols by Candlelight service often includes music especially written for the occasion. Another highlight is the Festal Evensong on Easter Day. The choir usually sings in a summer concert every other year. For more details of choir activities, please see the news posts and calendar.
