What We Do
We rehearse a broad repertoire, which we present regularly at concerts and events in and around Thetford, Norfolk.
Thetford Singers are always looking for new members to join our community. There are no auditions and you do not have to be able to read music. If you love using your voice, we would like to hear from you.
Join us every Wednesday at 7.30pm at Thetford Methodist Church!
Please get in touch to find out more!
Lockdown 3.0 and Still Singing
There is no stopping Thetford Singers from singing even if rehearsals have changed somewhat this year. Experimenting with the possibilities of ‘singing together’ by zoom have been a revelation. Musical Director Chris Parsons has led the way from his home with the accompanist assisting from her home and members singing in their homes. But it works! It even means a previous member has re-joined the choir from her home in France!
So much new material has been added to the choir’s repertoire from folk songs to ballads to Christmas songs, traditional, jazzy and the more unusual, all to be performed as a choir in the future. Singing together, even by zoom, is certainly good for well-being and an evening of the week that the members all look forward to!
The second half of rehearsals has been a social time of sharing ‘desert isolation discs’ by the members, quizzes and sharing favourite Christmas carols. This has proved to be a great way of getting to know each other as well as educational and fun!
And with a bit of luck we will have put this time largely behind us as we move forward into a new term of in-person rehearsals. We are all very excited to finally hear each other sing again and hope to see as many of you as possible on or after 8th September 2021 in the Methdist Church Hall!
