A revelation…mature control, exquisitely accurate harmony and voices like crystal. Henley Standard
The senior choir meets on Mondays at Marketplace, Henley between 6.15-7.00pm. There are NO AUDITIONS and the first session can be taken as a trial with no obligation.
The choir sings a variety of music – the aim is to have fun while learning to sing to a high standard. The 2014/15 repertoire included: Something inside so strong; Ave verum corpus; California dreaming; With a little help from my friends; Bridge over Troubled water; Shenandoah and When I hear music.
The senior choir also gets involved in special Workshops such as that with superb South African singer Joyce Moholoagae. Last year the choir gave several performances including at the Henley Choral Society’s 2014 Christmas Concert; the Kenton Theatre as part of the Henley Youth Festival Sing event and at the Family Day at the Barn Bar during Henley Royal Regatta. The Senior Choir also sang in the Henley Choral Society’s Summer concert, performing on their own and with the Society in two Tippett Spirituals.
The Youth Choirs gave 2 performances in December 2015. The first was as part of the Living Advent calendar and the second was at the Henley Choral Society’s Christmas concert. Recent reviews include:
“the Junior Youth Choir were a force to be reckoned with…. Confident and articulate…. An absolute delight”.
“The sound of the Senior Youth Choir was beautiful“.
