THE HISTORY OF CHORUS
The world is our oyster!!
In the summer City Chorus toured in Cardiff and sang with the Llantrisant Male Choir. We then went on to perform at Union Chapel, Islington for Remembrance Sunday
We were busy throughout 2015 but the highlight was our 'Night Fever' concert packed with songs from the shows and movies!
City Chorus went on its first tour in 2014. Members of City Chorus participated in the 'Fields of Gold' Tour commemorating our war dead and performing at spectacular venues in Normandy, France.
During 2013 City Chorus went on a Tea Tour of local churches, performing in stunning locations accompanied by scrumptious cakes and tea. The Christmas concert was held at St Michael's Church in Letchworth and we were privileged to be accompanied by the Broxbourne Hand Bell Ringers.
In the summer of 2012 Chorus held a concert in the stunning St Mary's church in Hitchin, accompanied by a full orchestra and a beautiful rendition of Zadok the Priest.
2012 saw the Olympic torch relay pass through Letchworth Town Centre. The Chorus were there to entertain the crowds and participate in this momentous occasion.
Showtime was the theme for the summer concert in 2011, a selection of songs from musicals and the movies.
As part of the Chorus community effort we participated in the Arlesey Fun day with singing and a tombola stall raising funds for the Garden City Hospice.
City Chorus was founded on the 20th January 2010 by Tony Ridgway-Cole. The first rehearsals were held at the Letchworth Salvation Army. The Chorus soon outgrew the church hall, so the Chorus moved rehearsal venues to the Free Church.
The Debut concert at the Free Church was entitled 'Hand in Hand' and also featured the WIlbury Junior School and Philip Fisher - Tenor Horn Soloist.
City Chorus celebrated the festive period with the 'When Christmas Comes to Town' concert held at Plinston Hall Letchworth.
