Worstead choir sings out for help

If you enjoy singing, waving a baton or playing along for others, your talents are in demand.

A north Norfolk community mixed choir with a wide repertoire is looking urgently for a new musical director/conductor and a new accompanist.

Singers with The Choir Worstead are also hoping to recruit new members – especially tenors, basses, baritones or even countertenors, to boost the male section.

Karen Smith, musical director with the choir for the past two years, is moving to North Wales with her job for construction group Morgan Sindall.

The community choir, which draws members mostly from villages around Worstead, has about 25 singers, aged from 16 to 85, with a wide repertoire including spirituals, ballads, songs from the musicals and pop numbers.

Rehearsals are held every Thursday evening and the choir puts on two major concerts each year including one in St Mary's Church, Worstead, as part of the village's annual summer festival.

Any experienced musicians interested in the posts of musical director/conductor or accompanist should contact the choir secretary, Helen Kelly, on 01692 538941.
