Two Newton Abbot singing groups are offering free trails to those who want to join in some fun singing seasons.
Newton Community Choir and Newton Gospel Group are springing into action by offering a free three-week trial to new comers.
Those who are interested can watch the choir’s free Spring Concert at the Avenue Church, Newton Abbot on Saturday, April 13 at 6pm, where you can hear harmonised numbers like I’m a Believer and Rule the World and gospel songs like Amazing Grace and Down by the Riverside.
Both Newton Abbot choirs are informal, sociable and approachable with no commitments and no auditions. Newton Community Choir sing a mixture of songs from pop to musical theatre to African songs. Newton Gospel Group sing both traditional and contemporary gospel songs, without religious preaching.
Megan Taper, choir leader, told the PRSD: “Now that the evenings are getting lighter we would like to encourage people to join our fun singing sessions.
“Newton Gospel Group will be singing uplifting gospel numbers throughout the summer and Newton Community Choir will be singing sea shanties, which will be sung on a local beach in August with fish and chips!”
Newton Community Choir meets every Thursday at 8pm-9.30pm and Newton Gospel Group meet every Monday 7.30pm-9pm. Both choirs are held at the Avenue Church, Newton Abbot in the small hall.
