Free lunchtime Hammersmith Staff Choir - Dates for spring
Only one month to go until the choir breaks up for the Easter holidays on Friday 23rd March, returning on Friday 13th April. After a Merry Christmas where the choir performed in the Lyric Hammersmith, the choir has been enjoying practising new tunes including Mamma Mia, Bohemian Rhapsody and Simon and Garfunkel’s The Sound of Silence.
Choirmaster Maya will be saying a temporary farewell as she begins her maternity adventure. We wish her all the best! Maya’s replacement will be Cathy Al Ghabra, a Mezzo Soprano with over a decade of experience in arts producing and teaching. Alongside her classical work, she performs acapella, jazz and pop. Cathy is currently freelancing as a Creative Producer leading on projects including at the outreach arm of the London Youth Choir. We look forward to welcoming her in the spring.
It’s not too late to join the choir. All employees in the Hammersmith BID area are welcome to come and take part for free. Choir takes place every Friday, 12.30pm – 1.30pm, in Music Practice Room 3 at the Lyric Hammersmith.
No auditions required – it is open to all abilities – and the music will be provided. Singing has been proven to reduce stress, so come and take a break from work, enjoy the music and meet other local employees!
We will continue to keep you updated on the choir through our website, Facebook and Twitter (@HammersmithBID). For more information, email us.
