Breath of Fresh Air for South Oxhey Choir
There’s a nice article about us in today’s Watford Observer.
Here’s a snippet:
Four years on from when the TV cameras first assembled for Gareth Malone’s The Choir: Unsung Town , the South Oxhey Choir is still drawing a crowd and the group has big plans as it returns to the Watford Palace Theatre with its Summer Concert, following on from the success of last year’s performance.
New chairman Steve Pickering says the committee was practically working full time to keep the choir running.
“We’ve been working really hard to encourage new members and widen our repertoire,“ he says. “Our director Simon Wookey has been bringing in some more challenging sacred songs and these went down very well at our concert at St Martins-in-the-Fields in April where we had a real mix of tourists and classical music fans. The sound in the church was just fantastic.“
