Potters Bar Community Choir
THURSDAYS 7.30PM-9.30PM (TERM TIME)
Thurs 4th Jan - Thurs 15th Mar 2018
Potters Bar Community Choir is now under the stewardship of Musical Director Luke Saydon and we would love you to join us.
Maybe you have sung in a choir before or you may be new to singing. Maybe you can read music or maybe not. Either way this could be the choir for you.
Along with improving your singing technique and making new friends you will tackle everything from popular music to showtunes. Why not join us for a trial session free of charge?
Just turn up on the night!

Sing for your Life
Come and sing along with us, just for the sheer enjoyment of singing. No experience needed – all are welcome, from absolute beginners to stars of screen and stage. After some gentle warm-ups for body and voice, we will sing music ranging from folk songs to musical theatre, classical to pop. This is a drop-in weekly session, though we hope that once you have been a few times, you will always want to come and Sing for your Life! It will be led by Jill Knight, a local choir director and musician.
Tuesdays 10am -11am £3.50 per session. This is a weekly activity and you can just turn up on the day and pay at box office.
