Amateur Swansea Community Choir
New members welcome!
A friendly and relaxed choir, with the community at its heart. Come and sing a range of songs under the guidance of experienced music teachers.
Open to everyone over 18! All abilities welcome!
Rehearsals Tuesdays 7pm - 8:45pm at St Catherine's Church Hall, Gorseinon.
Open to both men and women, of all abilities and voices, whether you think you can sing or not. We would love to have both beginners and those with lots of experience. The idea is to be fun and friendly and to be an opportunity to come together and get to know new people while enjoying a good sing. Singing is excellent for both our physical and mental health, and if you're looking for a new hobby, it is a great one to pick up!
We are continuously looking for new members, so contact us if you would like more information.
