The choir is led by Bath’s ‘Music Man’ Grenville Jones with over 70 enthusiastic members who are busy preparing their programme for the concert which will support Julia’s House Children’s Hospice, a local charity chosen by members of the choir. They have already raised £1,618.54 with their fundraising events since January this year.
Special guests will be the Pewsey Belles Ladies Choir.
The Good Afternoon Choirs were started by Bath-based music man Grenville Jones 12 years ago and there are now 20 across the South West of England with over 800 members ‘Singing in the Afternoon’.
There are no auditions to join and members of the Devizes Good Afternoon Choir come from all around the area, they meet every Friday afternoon from 2-4pm at St Andrews Church in Long Street. Everyone is welcome to come along and meet Grenville and the choir. There’s no charge for your first rehearsal “come and meet us on a Friday,” says Grenville.
Tickets for the concert are priced £8, and are available from Devizes choir members or from 01761 472468. There will be a retiring collection for Julia’s House Children’s Hospice and doors open at 7.00pm, with the concert starting at 7.30pm.
