At Holy Trinity, we use a wide variety of traditional and contemporary music to enhance our services, and the choir plays an important part in leading the worship.
For Boys and Girls
Children aged from 6 to about 14 years old whocome to choir practice and participate in the services develop a love of singing and learn a great deal about music.
We are always keen to welcome newcomers into the choir.Boys and girls from year 3 upwards may join.
All that is needed is for them to be able to read – we will do the rest. We will teach them how to sing and how to read music.
To be a choir member means that both parent and child must be committed. There are practices on:
Mondays from 5.00 - 6.00pm
Fridays from 7.00 – 8.30pm,
We expect our choristers to be in church every Sunday morning for the 10.00am service and some Sunday evenings also.
What some parents say about the choir:
Our son has really developed a love of music – we didn’t realise how well he could sing’
Her confidence has come on in leaps and bounds … we can’t keep her away!’
We can’t promise, but most enjoy the practices and grow to have a love of music, especially singing. In addition, we take the choristers out to Blackpool Pleasure Beach or Camelot, and there is a little financial reward as well. It can also help when seeking admittance to Church of England Secondary Schools.
We are looking for boys and girls aged from 6 – 10 years old.
Would your child like to be a member of our choir?
We are also keen to recruit adults into the choir, especially those who can sing tenor or bass!
A tuneful voice is necessary, an ability to read music is a bonus – though our choir master will happily work with enthusiastic learners!
Choir practice for adults overlaps with junior choir practice on:
FRIDAYS from 7.45pm – 9.30pm
(We have a short break at 8.30pm so parents can take their children home).
If you are interested, get in touch with Stephen Derringer on 722 9339, the Rector, on 733 2172, or come to any Friday choir practice at 8.30pm
It is said that singing in itself helps chase away depression, and our choir practices are full of laughter as well as hard work.
Why not come and see for yourself?
