Bunbury’s Community Choir has been renamed and relaunched as Just Sing!
During lockdown many choirs and other voluntary groups folded due to difficulties, but Covid also highlighted the need and desire to do something fun together, as a community.
We are lucky to have appointed Elaine Cook, from Market Drayton, as our new conductor. Elaine has loved singing all her life. She sang at university in the Royal Holloway College Chapel Choir and later under Halle Chorus Master Keith Orell. A soprano soloist, she has been vocal coach for several amateur productions, including Les Miserables and Anything Goes. She has a Diploma from the London College of Music and is an advocate of the benefits of singing together in choirs, but most of all for pleasure.
We are also lucky to have secured Alison Moss as our accompanist. Alison has just retired from being a piano teacher for 32 years. She has accompanied instrumentalists, singers and Christmas choirs; also Tarporley High School choir and Tarporley Scouts’ Gang Show. She is currently delivering fun music sessions in pre-schools.
We are an adult mixed community choir. We are open to all men and women 16 years and over. There are no auditions, and absolutely no requirement to read music or to have previous singing experience. Our emphasis is entirely on singing together, and having fun doing so.
We rehearse on Monday evenings in term time in Bunbury School Hall.
