A NEW choir in the Colne Valley is playing the generation game.
The recently-formed choir, based at Colne Valley Specialist Arts College in Linthwaite, has no age limits.
The aim is to bring families together to enjoy a new pastime.
In a matter of weeks the choir has reached 30 members but there is still room for more.
Already one family has three generations singing alongside each other.
The choir was born out of the Colne Valley Music Centre, part of Kirklees Music School.
Centre co-ordinator David Dransfield said: “As long as you can hold a note there’s no age restriction.
“Most of the kids involved already take instrumental music lessons but now this choir is open to the whole family.
“We have some members who are with formal choirs elsewhere and others who didn’t know they had a good voice until they came here.”
The choir, named the Colne Valley Singers, put the accent on fun.
“We are not stuffy,” said Mr Dransfield. “We aim to sing popular numbers that everybody can enjoy. It’s good, light-hearted fun.”
The choir meets every Friday night in term time from 6.10pm-7.10pm.
The choir, which has an optimum membership of 50, will perform in concert together for the first time at the school on Friday December 14 (7pm).
Anyone who wants to join can just turn up on a Friday night.
