Witney Choir in London

Singers from Witney performed at The Royal Albert Hall, London.
Joining 'The Really Big Chorus', members of the Witney Singing Group took part in Handel's 'Messiah' at the performance on Sunday 27th November 2016.
WOAPA principal, Brian Conroy, chatted with the conductor, Brian Kay, during the interval (pictured - left).
Brian Kay, who lives locally in West Oxfordshire, is always impressed at the numbers of WOAPA singers who take part - this year totalling 55 people.

"This is a very big departure from our usual repertoire - but a wonderful challenge for those taking part" Said WOAPA Principal, Brian Conroy.
"Our usual set-list is a very modern one - which is part of our unique attraction and is why our singing group in Witney continues to be so popular, with a current membership of over 80 people. However, we offer the opportunity of singing something more classical to our members, and were delighted that so many people opt in to attend separate rehearsals just for this performance. This year, with singers and audience guests, we had two coachloads of people travelling up to London! It's a great way to kick-start the festive season".
"Some of our singers had never sung in front of an audience before they joined us. WOAPA has built their confidence: they have made new friends, and now, here they are singing at one of the most prestigious venues in the world. We are constantly aiming to stretch boundaries as well as making our sessions loads of fun. There's always lots of laughter going on!"
