Join us for this free concert at Hailsham Parish Church at which we will welcome the town’s mayor. The concert will include performances by Hailsham Choral Society, Hailsham Voices Community Pop Choir and the young tenor, Ben Hancox.
Hailsham Choral are delighted to be taking part again in the Mayor’s concert in this Jubilee year. HCS celebrated its 60th Anniversary (a year late!) in March performing Messiah and are singing music for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at our Summer Concert on 2 July. We will be performing a selection from our extensive repertoire, which apart from the great choral works includes opera choruses, folksongs and songs from the musicals.
For more information about Hailsham Choral, see our website: www.hailshamchoral.org. New members, especially altos, tenors and basses, are always welcome, so if you are interested, do get in touch on email@example.com.”
Hailsham Voices, directed by Abbie Marsden, is a fun and friendly community pop choir for people of all ages and abilities. Abbie set up the choir in 2018 with the aim of inspiring people to sing in a choir, regardless of ability or music reading skills, and this local pop choir has thrived from the outset thanks to their collective joy and passion for singing.
