The Bungay Community Choir is joining forces with its sister choir in Beccles for a special concert to mark its fifth anniversary.

The two groups will perform 'A Summer Concert' at Bungay's Fisher Theatre featuring tunes from many different genres, including musicals, wartime, big band, 1950s and 1960s.

Paul Amer, musical director, said it promised to be a memorable afternoon.

Mr Amer said: 'Both choirs are really looking forward to the chance to perform together on our joint theatre show. Everybody has been working hard to rehearse and prepare to make sure that the audience will enjoy what they see.'

Both choirs were founded to explore how singing can benefit health and wellbeing, and they regularly attract 60-100 singers at rehearsals.

The concert is on Saturday, July 23 at 4pm. Tickets are £7, concessions £6 from 01986 897130 or online at www.fishertheatre.org
