Started in October 2010, this is a choir for all those who love to sing, be it in the shower, car or with a hairbrush. We get together once a week for a practise and work towards gigs/concerts where we make a sound that people will love to hear and maybe even want to come and be a part of! There’s no catch to being a member and it’s certainly not a ‘church’ choir, it’s just a gift if you like, to the people of Ashford and surrounding area. Come, sing, enjoy!
Our repertoire is pop/rock songs (English, not Latin!) and there’s no audition to get in. All you need is enthusiasm. This is a choir for Ashford (mainly!) and in Ashford. Many people have come along and been a part and most are still there! Currently we have between 200 and 250 people on the books…It’s some sound!
As a choir, we are partners with Pilgrims Hospice and have raised nearly £40,000 to help them in their valuable work. We have performed at County Square, Designer Outlets, various school and village fetes, Ashford International Hotel, The Leas Cliff Hall Folkestone, and have been on many international tours: to the Rheinlands in Germany in 2012, to Fougeres in France in 2013, and to Haarlem, Amsterdam in 2014, Windsor in 2015, Brussels (Ghent and Ypres) in 2016 and Paris in 2017 – singing on stage at Disneyland Paris too!
For the last few years we have also had loads of fun singing under the Christmas tree at Trafalgar Square and can’t wait to do it again this year.
