A local youth choir is looking forward to an exciting programme of rehearsals and gigs for 2017. The choir meets at the Acorn Centre Lummaton Cross, Torquay at 5pm on Mondays during term time. The first meeting of the Spring Term 2017 will be Monday 16th January. The choir is funded by the Torbay Music Hub, so is FREE to attend.
Taking its name from the Centre, The Acorn Choir write their own songs about all sorts - superheroes, travelling around the world, or working at the local quarry. The choir also sing songs from the old English folk tradition as well as having fun learning new pieces from all over the world.
The singers say, “This choir is brilliant - spectacular - encouraging - tuneful - harmonious - literally breathtaking!”
Choir leader Emily Howard says “I think that the energy in this group is infectious and I look forward to Monday nights - we have so much fun”
Wren Music leader Paul Wilson helps with the group and adds “the concentration and commitment of the young singers is impressive - they manage to conquer their nerves and totally shine in performances.”
The Acorn choir have two exciting performances coming up this year. The big performance this term will be at the Torbay Schools Festival, at the Riviera Centre on Monday March 27th. The second at the Princess Theatre, for Wren’s Sing Around the Bay finale, in June.
Later this term there will be a video released all about the choir, which was made with the help of funding from Torbay’s own Doorstep Arts.
Emily heads up the team which also includes volunteer Louise Sessions who sings with the Torbay Folk Choir, as well as young music leader Aimee Morgan. Louise often makes lovely biscuits for rehearsal break time!
So come along and join us on a Monday evening 5pm - 6.30pm at the Acorn Centre, Lummaton Cross, Barton, Torquay, TQ2 8ET. Lots of fun!
