Witney Choir to sing at Chipping Norton Music Festival
Chipping Norton Music Festival 2020
About Chipping Norton Music Festival
One of the oldest festivals of its kind, The Chipping Norton Music Festival is held during March each year in the Oxfordshire town of Chipping Norton.
The festival has been promoting music-making in the north-east Cotswolds since 1904. Although the festival is non-competitive, artists are adjudicated by professionals.
It provides performing opportunities and constructive feedback to musicians as well as giving enormous pleasure to audience and performers alike.
WOAPA's Adult Singing Group's Chipping Norton performance will be on Saturday 7th March at 4.30pm in The Town Hall, Chipping Norton, in the 'Open Choirs' category.
WOAPA has TWO Singing Groups in Witney for adults (age 16+).
1. Our group for experienced singers who have sung in a group situation before.
2. Our group for beginners who are new to singing, a little rusty or are simply terrified of singing in public.
Our group for experienced singers began in September 2011, with 23 singers, and has become extremely popular - now with over 90 people enrolled.
There are no auditions to join - and no requirement to be able to read music. The emphasis is on having FUN, while singing with like-minded people Our singers often tell us how great they feel afterwards.
We have a very contemporary repertoire - Adele, Michael Buble, Robbie Williams, Olly Murs, One Direction, Lenka, Glee, Emile Sande, Jessie J, Bruno Mars 'Lady GaGa' are already on our list as well as songs from modern musicals such as Hamilton, Dear Evan Hanson, 'Priscilla', Hairspray and Sister Act.
We often perform in the local community and beyond, including Christmas Light switch-ons, Outdoor festivals, flashmobs and even The Royal Albert Hall.
If you like to sing in a choir, but prefer a more fun, relaxed approach, then WOAPA's Adult Singing Group in Witney is for you.
Our singers attend from all across West Oxfordshire, such as Burford and Brize Norton, Woodstock, Faringdon and Chipping Norton, as well as further afield - from Oxford, Botley, Eynsham and Kidlington.
