At the Ascension we have both a choir and a Music Group. The choir sings once a month, usually on the third Sunday, and at major festivals such as Ascension Day and the Christmas Carol service. The Music Group plays for the first Sunday service in the month. Both our groups welcome new members, so if you are interested please contact us or drop in on a Sunday morning.
The choir sings repertoire in 4 part harmony, from the 16th century to the present day. They rehearse on two Wednesday evenings each month and then sing the following Sunday morning. The highlight of the choir year is the Christmas Carol service.
We are a very friendly, mixed ability choir so singing experience, although appreciated, is not essential. All voice parts are welcome and it would be good to have some more people joining us.
The Music Group welcomes instrumentalists of all standards and ages. It plays at the All Age service once a month, accompanying hymns and songs, as well as providing music before and after the service. Rehearsals are on the Sunday morning before the service.
