IF YOU like to sing and fancying joining a group where music is very much about having fun, then why not head for All Saints Amateur Operatic Society in Halifax?
Founded more than 40 years ago, the group sings everything from West End musicals to Mozart.
Now they are out to recruit more voices to join them for concerts and who knows, even for a stage show.
Next event on the horizon is a ‘stand and sing’ concert in the autumn. There will be three performances; on October 2 and 3 at Square Chapel, Centre for the Arts, and on October 4 in Heath United Reformed Church, Free School Lane. They begin at 7.30pm.
The society is rehearsing on Thursdays at 7.30pm at the Stage Door Studio, 11 James Street, Halifax.
This annual concert consists covers a wide range of music, from musicals to opera, from traditional to classical. It will also feature songs from the society’s next major stage show, Fiddler On The Roof, which will be presented at The Playhouse, Halifax from March 31 to April 4.
“You don’t have to be an experienced singer or thespian (there are no auditions), as long as you love the arts, have enthusiasm and wonder if you will take to the bright lights, then this is for you. No rules, no qualifications needed, no pressure and no obligation – just come and join the fun and the rest will fall into place,” said a spokeswoman for the society.
