Choir resumes rehearsals.
We would welcome new voices to our soprano, tenor and bass sections. Anyone who is interested in singing within a fun and learning environment should contact the Musical Director, Secretary or just come along to one of our rehearsals and listen.
2019 looks to be a busy and exciting year for us.
Please come along and support us at any of the events on our Calendar page.
Like most choirs, Whitsand Harmony, who practise at "The Zone", Downderry on a Wednesday evening under the leadership of Mrs Ann Wills, began singing carols and festive music in October ahead of their forthcoming events.
December 1st saw the choir performing as part of the "Order of Service" for a wedding in Downderry, which was a delightful way to start the Christmas month.
On December 5th, the choir combined their social evening with a fundraising event for the Parkinson charity, raising just over £400 and ensuring that choir and audience alike had a fun evening.
The weekend of December 8th and 9th was busy with the choir singing on both days at Mount Edgecumbe's annual Christmas Fair. "It is always a thrill to sing on the beautiful staircase in the Grand Hallway of the house, providing an interlude for those perusing the gifts and crafts"
During the evening of December 9th, Whitsand Harmony took part in the "Nine Lessons and Carols" service at All Saints' Church, Millbrook with a rousing encore of 'Kumbayah".
On Sunday 16th December, the choir took part in another "Nine Lessons and Carols", on this occasion at "The Zone", Downderry.
The choir hopes all its supporters had a happy festive season and look forward to seeing everyone in the New Year.
