Calling tenors and basses: The King's Lynn Festival Chorus needs you

By Lynn News Reporter

King’s Lynn Festival Chorus would like to hear from tenors and basses, particularly, who wish to join them at the beginning of a very busy and exciting new season on Monday, September 3.

A subscription-free first term is offered to new tenors and basses to be part of perhaps the best choral group in West Norfolk.

Here is an opportunity to sing the well known big works, the crown jewels of the choral repertoire, as well as smaller, more intimate works.

And the added bonus of working with and learning from some of the best people on the musical world.

A spokesman for the Chorus said: “ It doesn’t matter if you last sang while at school or at further education.

“If you can hold the tune of ‘My Way’ down at the pub, we’d like to hear from you.

“It helps if you can follow a music score but it isn’t compulsory.

“Don’t worry if you’re not sure if you’re a tenor or bass, as you will be assessed to find your best and most comfortable range.”

As well as being resident choir for the annual King’s Lynn Festival, the Chorus performs several concerts throughout the year, working with well-­known professional soloists and orchestras.

Many concerts have featured Broadway classics, American spirituals and arrangements of pop music.

Local concerts are often given in Lynn’s St Nicholas’ Chapel, whose size (the largest ‘chapel of ease’ in England) and outstanding acoustics lend themselves to large-­scale performances.
