ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS 2020
Sunday December 6th 2020
THE ADVENT CAROL SERVICE
at Emmanuel, Wylde Green, 6.30 pm
Emmanuel Choir is for boys and girls and offers the experience of learning to become a first rate young musician through singing, reading music and working as a team. Life changing skills, good friends, great memories
e mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
This Summer, following A level results of August 2019, saw the three 18 year-old members of the Choir take up scholarships at Birmingham Conservatoire and Royal Northern College of Music.
The Choir offers youngsters that cathedral-style experience and repertoire but without a full-time commitment. The requirement to perform different music regularly is unique to this sort of choir and develops an all-round accomplished young musician
We sing regular choral services on Sundays at 10.00 am and 6.30 pm during term-time at Emmanuel Church, Wylde Green. The two choirs share the responsibility for providing music at these services. We are also available for Weddings at Emmanuel Church or other venues. We sing a wide repertoire ranging from short pieces to major choral works with full orchestra. No other young persons' choir can offer such a rich variety of music learning and performance.
The 2019 tour in France was highly acclaimed with over sixty musicians (Choir and Orchestra) singing Vaughan Williams, Poulenc and Handel.
