COME AND SiNG is a new singing initiative set up by West End Musical Theatre performer Chris Holland.
There is a relaxed, fun and non stuffy atmosphere whilst learning some technical skills, and singing a wide variety of material from top musicals, top singers and composers, with the members themselves having input into the songs they'd like to sing.
There's no need to be able to read music, to have any experience at all. You just want to have fun singing your troubles away!
The choir is aimed primarily at adults although family groups with teens may want to have the opportunity to sing together and they'd be very welcome!
Sessions are held on Wednesday evenings from 8.00 to 9.30 in St Patrick's Church, Greystones.
Cost €100 for a 10 week term, enquire about family discounts!
