Choir membership

To followers of the Apollo choir it has been obvious in recent years that choir membership has been decreasing at a steady rate. As older members leave us, for various reasons, we haven’t been able to achieve replacements, probably because it doesn’t have the musical attraction for  the younger singers. However, for those of us who experience the pleasure and camararderie of being in a choir it is difficult to understand why so many, particularly men, who enjoy singing are reluctant to get involved. Choir singing is in vogue now and is recognised to be very therapeutic, apparently helping to delay onset of dementia. So, come on, take a chance, join us at St. Barnabas Church every Monday at 7.30 pm.
