MORE than 40 mums turned up for the recent first rehearsal of one of the town’s four new choirs.
This week it is the turn of Altrincham’s seniors, workers and teenagers to get together and maybe find the voices they didn’t know they had.
The Altrincham Sings project is the idea of sisters Claire and Tina O’Brien – directors of Altrincham Children’s Choir. It is about singing for pure enjoyment – no auditions and everyone is welcome.
Claire said: “The first meeting of the mums was so much fun and they made some great sounds too. Everybody was buzzing at the end and we are expecting even more mums at this week’s rehearsal. We can’t wait to start with the other groups now.”
Anyone interested in joining in the fun just needs to turn up at one of the weekly rehearsals – details below. For more information follow @AltySings on Twitter or phone Claire on 07779 668204.
Claire added “Anyone who has seen the Children’s Choir knows we take a light-hearted approach to singing together – we just want our choirs to enjoy themselves and each other.”
