I have taken over being Musical Director of my old community choir in Wakefield again (after a 3 year break) and re-launched it as Cloud 9. New location, new name, new songs! No auditions, open to anyone who loves to sing whether you have sung in a choir before or not. We love singing uplifting and heartfelt songs from around the world. Welcoming group and lots of laughing. This is VERY good for your wellbeing – both emotional and physical. (Click on poster to enlarge)
Thursdays, 7:30 pm at St Austins, Wentworth Terrace, Wakefield WF1 3QN, £5 per session.
