There is a long tradition of a church choir at St. Chad’s, with adult and junior sections. Most services have a choral element, and our choir has many loyal, long-serving members who sing at the weekly services. At present, we have 3 junior members and 12 adults. We are fortunate, however, to have further help from a number of associate choir members who join us whenever they are able, and for special services.
We would really welcome more junior and adult members, who would be taught informally, how to read a musical score, matters relating to voice production, and the basics of music theory, whilst contributing weekly to the choir.
At present we are rehearsing some lively anthems for Easter. In October we hope to sing at Lichfield Cathedral as part of a diocesan choir festival. The choir provides music at other church festivals and also sings at many weddings during the year. Choir practices are held Thursdays, 7-8pm.
