HELP US CELEBRATE 75 YEARS OF SINGING

Briantspuddle Singers was founded in 1943 and will celebrate its 75th year in 2018. This friendly mixed voice choir takes its name from where they rehearse in the picturesque thatched village hall at Briantspuddle on a Tuesday evening from 7.30-9.30p.m. The choir enjoys making music together under the leadership of their musical director, of which there have only been three in the past 75 years! The group is open to all singers without audition and is a registered charity. One of the aims of the charity is education and it would like to encourage younger members with an interest in classical choral music to explore this fulfilling repertoire further.

Briantspuddle Singers is also a founder member of the Dorset Guild of Singers. The Guild comprises smaller choirs which come together to perform larger works requiring greater numbers of singers and musicians. The work performed at the Guild’s 2018 Spring concert was Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius.

In the Summer Term the choir hosted at work shop day for singers to perform Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man.  This has led to an invitation to join the Questa Voce choir for their concert on 3rd November 2018 at the Tank Museum in Bovington where they will be performing excerpts from ‘The Armed Man’.

The Autum Term begins on Tuesday 4th September and the choir will be working towards their celebratory concert on 20th October at Briantspuddle Village Hall.  New members are always welcome and we would be delighted to welcome past members who would like to join the choir for this ‘Silver and Gold’ Concert to celebrate 75 years of singing.

If you are interested in joining the choir please contact: The Chairman, Mrs Jenny Preston at jen.preston63@btinternet.com or The Secretary, Mrs Andrea Smith at allandrea.smith@googlemail.com
