Just one day to go before the Township Choir launches, thanks to Open Minds Theatre Company. We have HUGE plans and want you all to be part of them.
Some have asked about age ranges. There will be three strands to the choir:
- The Core Choir (which will meet on Wednesday Evenings at OMTC) will be open to young people and adults from around 14yrs up (slightly younger folks will be fine if they attend secondary school. The suggested age is just to keep the focus on adults and teenagers, as schoolchildren will get the chance to get involved through their schools).
- The School Choir will be open to groups from schools around Rotherham and will rehearse in 2016 (probably Summer and Autumn Term), joining the Core Choir for major events. Schools will be informed of the details in the new year.
- The Rotherham Township Band will begin rehearsals in 2016 and will accompany the choirs at major events throughout the year, made up of musicians again from around 14yrs up.
There will be LOTS more information at the launch tomorrow night, so…
…tell everyone you know, re-post, tweet, blog, shout from the rooftops, make t-shirts, send up balloons, engage sky-writers, etc, and PLEASE come along and bring your friends.
Whatever your experience of choirs, we promise this will be like nothing you’ve ever done before. Everyone welcome.
Agenda for the Launch event:
– Meet people
– Find out what the choir is all about
– Make short work of some refreshments
– Have fun and sing a bit
– Sign up for the choir
– Go home smiling
