Alresford Community Choir

Voice Academy

How Did the Choir begin?

The Alresford Community Choir was founded by Keith Clark in January 2012, with the generous support of Hampshire Music Service, ensuring that we have had initial funding for our Director, Accompanist and music hire, and motivation for more than 120 members to come together to enjoy singing. Hampshire Music Service is funding and organising our first performance, in Winchester Cathedral, alongside our singers and groups.

What Happened Next?

After the success of our first joint venture in Winchester Cathedral in March 2012 we prepared for two more performances of Zimbe!  

 

In June and July we performed two concerts in St John's Church, Alresford and were joined by the Hampshire County Youth Choir and the Hampshire County Children's Choir.  The first half of each concert consisted of individual items by each of the choirs and in the second half we performed Zimbe!  This rounded off, in spectacular style, our first six months.

And in the Future?

All of us have the capacity to improve.

Our Director is often telling members that they have everything that they need to become great singers. In the future, we will continue to challenge members to develop individually, as well as within the choir.  

 

This is what we mean by our Voice Academy.

 

  • group "theory through sigh-singing' classes (free to members)
  • group vocal coaching classes (free to members)
  • opportunities for individual vocal coaching (there is an additional charge for these sessions)

 

If you have any ideas to help us in this task, don't be shy,  please let us know!
