North Curry Village Choir is a community choir based in North Curry with a catchment radius of about 15 miles. The choir was established over 50 years ago and we meet over two terms per year starting January and September. Rehearsals take place during these sessions culminating in a concert at springtime and Christmas.
Our aim is to sing for enjoyment but at the same time to learn choral music as an act of fulfilment and, hopefully to enrich the community life by its performance. We are a secular organisation but the greater part of music for choirs consists of cantatas and oratorios based on religious texts. There are also part songs, madrigals and secular cantatas which have been used by us in the past.
We meet on Thursdays during term time at 8:00pm in the North Curry Village Hall and welcome newcomers who have had some choral singing experience; good sight-reading is not essential. There are presently no auditions and all we ask is that those wishing to give it ‘a go’ try us out for a month or so in the first instance.
