New children’s choir to launch in Saffron Walden

THIS month will see the birth of a new children’s choir at St Mary’s Parish Church.

The choir will be for children aged 6-8 and will run in the Parish Rooms from 3.45-4.30pm, starting on Friday April 20.

‘Joyful Noise’ will be an informal and inclusive group, enabling children to find their voices and learn to sing all types and styles of music, plus songs and rhymes from around the world. They will play musical games to develop the concepts of pitch, rhythm and texture, and will experiment with choral speaking, using poetry and percussion.

To get involved or for more information contact the leader, Kate Beare, on 01799 523591.
