Did you know that singing in a choir is very beneficial to your health and wellbeing? Have you ever wanted to have a go at singing in a choir? Now’s your chance to give it a try and raise money for a good cause at the same time.
The Callington Singers are very pleased to announce that the choir has recently been awarded a grant from Cornwall Council’s ‘Community Chest’ scheme. The aim of this scheme is to support local ‘not for profit’ community events and programmes. The Callington Singers are keen to support their home town, so we are using the money to fund a singing workshop to raise money for Callington Heritage Museum.
The Workshop is designed to be accessible to everybody of any singing ability to come and sing the most well known choral works. If you take part you will also be able to keep the sheet music as a souvenir of the day.
We will be providing refreshments during tea breaks, including cake! We are not providing a lunch option but there are many good places to eat in and around Callington, so we hope you will take the opportunity to explore the town.
Even if you are not a singer, you can still help us to raise money by coming along to the concert which follows the singing day. A volunteer from the Heritage Centre will be giving a short presentation about the work they do followed by a performance by participants of the workshop to show off what they have learnt.
The programme for the day will include some of the greatest pieces of choral music ever written, including works by Handel, Mozart, Haydn, Vaughan Williams, Vivaldi, Fauré and others.
