For over 25 years the Benefice has had a small but keen choir made up of members from various parishes. Currently we practice most Tuesday evenings at 7.45pm in Stoke Lyne. The choir sings at the regular monthly Evensong in one of the Benefice churches. We also sing at the Benefice service which takes place whenever there is a fifth Sunday in the month, and at occasional special services (for example Harvests, Commemoration of the Departed, Good Friday etc.)
At present we are looking for a new choir conductor. But we are fortunate in having a regular organist to play for practices and services, and to assist with planning the music. Recently, we have started to do some joint work with the choir of St Edburg’s, Bicester. This enables us to tackle more part singing, and it is enjoyable to sing in a larger group.
The choir would love new people to join. We work very informally. A sense of fun, and enthusiasm, is more important than musical knowledge, ability to read music etc. For more information ring Penny on 01869-277310, or Becky (Benefice Administrator, on 01280-848192 during office hours, 9.00am to 1.00pm. Tuesday, Thursday and Friday).
