ECS is a choir made up of 40 sopranos, 30 altos, 10 basses and 10 tenors and has musical team which include leader, Simon Thompson, assistant Tim Heywood, accompanists Mike Beard and Louise Strickland. In addition, for concerts, they are joined by Ian Abbot and Martin Roscoe (guitar) and Paul Mountain (drums).
We rehearse at West Bridgford Methodist Church, Musters Road, West Bridgford
Nottingham, NG2 7PQ and support Dove Cottage and Histio UK. So far we have raised £3200 this year.
Recent concerts include a collaboration at WBMC with West Bridgford Social Singers performing songs together from 'Les Mis' and Queen. We boarded the singing train to Cromford and had a fantastic day!
April 25th WBMC with Camden Voices 7pm
May 16th St Barnabas with Jelly 7.30pm
June 13th Annual concert at WBMC
We attract 70 singers each week and have a nice balance between a warm-up, songs we know well, new songs and a very short break. Lou leads a pre-rehearsal with altos and Mike works with the men from 7.15-7.45pm. The full rehearsal starts at 7.45pm.
We have three social events, one in each term, at restaurants and bars. We have an annual residential trip. This year it's Bakewell again and last year Retford. We also performed on the singing train to Cromford in May 2019.
Our choir have smart short sleeved blouses/shirts and optional fleeces and coats.
So we are enjoying ourselves and getting better and better!
