Music at St Mary’s
The Alde River Benefice Choir
The Alde River Benefice Choir is based at St Mary’s, Benhall. We rehearse twice a month and are involved in worship at Benefice Services. We also sing at other services, including Nine Lessons and Carols, Choral Evensong, Taizé Services, and the occasional wedding. We sing a wide variety of music, from the very modern to the very ancient!
Who’s in the choir?
At present we are a choir of up to about 15 adults (men and women), although we have a number of extra singers who join us for big services.
New singers are always welcome – we would be pleased to welcome children aged 8+ as well, though this will need to be discussed in advance with Hannah.
Do I need to be able to read music?
When do you practice?
We usually practice on the first and third Saturdays of the month, from 9-10am at Benhall Church.
Are there any auditions?
Can I come along and see how it goes?
