Choirs singing in perfect harmony
TWO choirs will join together for a concert covering a range from classical to West End favourites.
The Seer Green Singers and Village Voices will perform at the Barbirolli Hall, St Clement Danes School, Chorleywood, on Saturday, October 18, at 7.30pm.
The evening will include a wide-ranging programme of music, from classical to West End musicals, jazz, and pop.
The ladies’ choir, Village Voices, and recently-formed men’s choir will each perform their own repertoires and sing together for part of the concert.
Charlotte Yeoman, a local professional singer, will also perform.
The choirs’ annual concert, which has previously been held in churches in Old Amersham and Old Beaconsfield, takes place for the first time at St Clement Danes School, a larger venue, to cater for the choirs’ growing popularity.
The founder and director of Music for both choirs is Jane Smith, music teacher at Seer Green School, composer and conductor, who lives in Seer Green.
Village Voices, this year celebrating its 10th anniversary, was established by Mrs Smith and a small group of mothers at Seer Green School.
Its number has swelled to 70 and in recent years they have performed at high profile locations in Ireland, Prague, Bruges and Paris.
The men’s choir, Seer Green Singers, was set up less than two years ago and numbers have already reached 45. Tickets £12 (includes a glass of wine).
