Choir giving charity concert

THE Wells Good Afternoon Choir will present a charity concert at St Thomas’ Church in Wells on Friday, July 21, at 7.30pm (doors open 7pm).

The choir is led by Good Afternoon Choir founder Grenville Jones with more than 60 enthusiastic members who are busy preparing their programme for the concert which will support Papyrus, a suicide prevention charity chosen by the members of the choir.

The Good Afternoon Choirs were started by Bath-based Grenville 13 years ago and there are now 23 across the South West of England with more than 900 members ‘Singing in the Afternoon’.

There are no auditions to join and members of the Wells Good Afternoon Choir come from in and around the area, they meet every Tuesday afternoon from 2pm-4pm at St Thomas’ Church. Everyone is welcome to go along and meet Grenville and the members of the choir.

The special guests for the concert will be the Village Voices, an all-comers community choir who sing for fun and friendship, led by musical director Kerrie Duce-Jones. They like to perform a few times a year and always enjoy joining with other singing groups whenever possible.

This is a free admission concert with a retiring collection for Papyrus.

Grenville Jones said: “It is going to be a great night of music and we are absolutely delighted to be sharing the stage with the Village Voices.”
