General Information      including enrolment form

The Lighter Side Choral Course warmly welcomes keen choral singers of a reasonably accomplished standard and with a keen ear and sense of rhythm to a week of wonderful music making.


Here you will find a wild selection of foot stomping fun pieces with plenty of pure sentimental nostalgia to keep emotions balanced. Several pieces could be challenging but enough of the repertoire is very approachable to ensure our concert will be the success we have come to expect and enjoy. Be prepared to work hard, but essentially remember to bring a loud costume for the concert!.
