Community choir on the lookout for Banbury singers

Community choir on the lookout for Banbury singers.

Banbury residents are invited to step into the spotlight as a community choir lifts the curtain once again on its rehearsal sessions.

Community Albums, supported by Sanctuary Housing, is re-launching its ever-popular Vocal Band choir sessions for local aspiring singers of all ages to come and sing their heart out, no matter what their ability or previous experience.

Singing a range of current hits from stars including Clean Bandit, Ed Sheeran and Adele, the choir will meet every Friday, starting on 20 January 2017, at 5.30pm for an hour, at the Hill Youth and Community Centre on Dover Avenue.

“Having fun and building confidence”

Simon Hill from Community Albums said: “We’re really looking forward to working with the choir again. It really doesn’t matter if you’ve sung before or not, it’s about having fun and building confidence. The sessions will run for five weeks, following which we hope to secure further funding so we can continue them on a long-term basis.”

“Supporting community organisations”

Kate Winstanley, Sanctuary’s neighbourhood partnerships manager, added: “The Vocal Band is a really popular choir in Banbury so I’m sure there will be lots of people keen to join in.

“Supporting community organisations that are opening up opportunities like this to residents is important to us. We are always looking to invest in community-led groups, like Vocal Band, that help people realise the ambitions they hold for themselves and for their neighbourhoods.”
