Witney Choir to sing at the Royal Albert Hall, London
"This is a very big departure from our usual repertoire - but a wonderful challenge for those taking part" said WOAPA Principal, Brian Conroy. "We organised for some of our singers to perform at the Albert Hall last year, and lots of them wanted to repeat the performance, so we are performing for a second time this November, joined by even more of our singers".
"Our usual set-list is a very modern one - which is part of our unique attraction and is why our singing group in Witney has been so popular, with a current membership of over 80 people. However, we offered the opportunity of singing something more classical to our members, and were delighted that so many people opted in to attend separate rehearsals just for this performance. We now have two coachloads of people travelling up to London! It will be 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!"
