Recent years have witnessed a welcome revolution in the popularity of choirs and singing and it has been estimated that 2.8 million Britons are now members of a choir.
Hailsham Festival is proud to support the resurgence of accessible singing groups and to welcome three local choirs to this concert.
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. If you are interested in joining Hailsham Voices you can either follow them on Facebook or go to www.hailshamvoices.org
Bourne to Sing and Warbleton Warblers are both Community choirs open to all established in 2012 and led by Kerry Evenden. For this concert they will perform as a combined choir. Based in Eastbourne and Warbleton, the primary focus is to create a safe and fun atmosphere for people to develop their singing skills.
We perform a mixture of Pop, rock, folk, soul and gospel tunes. Members are also encouraged to make song suggestions!
The Eastbourne Community Choir was founded in 2018 with the aim of providing fun and community through singing, together with the many associated health benefits.
We meet most Thursdays of the year and each session is an end unto itself. As a whole choir we do not do any performances (excellent events such as today’s are attended by those choir members who wish to perform). Our primary purpose will always remain to facilitate live singing, of whatever ‘standard’, in a supportive and non-judgemental environment without ‘rehearsing’ for specific events.
There is no need to read music, although some members do.
There is no need to have prior experience of choirs or singing, although some members do. Sessions can be attended on a drop-in basis or as regularly as desired.
We are fortunate to have an excellent rehearsal venue, with no steps, which is wheelchair-accessible.
The Eastbourne Community Choir is proud to work in association with Eastbourne and District Mencap.
We are pleased to support the Hailsham Festival in its celebration of ensemble-singing in our area.
