There is always a friendly welcome for new members. The choir is non-auditioned, with a wide range of musical ability, but a common love of having fun and expressing themselves through song. Kate Edgar, choir director, adds "We could definitely do with more men. Come on guys, you know you want to!"
Downton Community Choir is now back to full strength at their new home, the beautifully refurbished Sherwood Room at The Clubhouse, next to Downton Leisure Centre. Most regular members have returned, and the choir has been delighted to welcome some new faces, and voices!
The choir enjoyed performing at this year’s Cuckoo fair and is now busy rehearsing for the village Jubilee celebrations on June 2 in the memorial gardens, and on June 5 in the Moot.
If you are interested in joining, the choir rehearses from 7-8:30pm every Wednesday evening during term time. If you are organising a fund raising event in the village and would like the choir to sing, then do contact Kate.
