Modern choirs for people who love to sing

Welcome Horsham

For some, Monday was about fancy dress and either accompanying mini trick or treaters, or waiting for them to knock on the door (while sitting inside secretly eating the sweets and chocolates...). 

However, for Jude and the inChoir team Monday meant the launch of our newest choir in Horsham. 

With a long list of those who had signed up online, we were quietly optimistic...but you never really know how many to expect! A few rows of chairs were laid out, knowing we could add more if the 40 or so prepared chairs were filled. 

Then, as the clock reached 7.15pm, the floodgates opened. More than 90 people streamed through the doors as Isla, Sue and I reached for registration form after registration form and ticked off nearly every person who had signed up in advance. Every seat in the hall was filled, with some of those who arrived later seated on tiny chairs or benches! 

What a fun session. Jude taught everyone 'With a Little Help from my Friends' which sounded great. We all had a laugh at some of the lyrics (it's amazing what you sing for years without knowing what you're actually singing) and confidence grew as the evening went on. By the end of the evening, we'd reached the end of the song and had a brilliant time singing it all the way through a couple of times. 

Many of those joining us for a taster session came and registered afterwards... so many in fact that we almost ran out of folders! Thank you to those from other branches who came to support Jude and inChoir, we really appreciated you being there. 

All in all, I think it's safe to say that Monday was a resounding success and that we are all looking forward to next week already!
