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).
Our most recent concert at St Luke's was agreat success and raised £555 for Autism East Midlands and £600 for Walking Notts.
The choir is currently full and we have many events planned for 2018-19 including:
Saturday December 8th Hope House carol concert 7.30pm
Friday December 14th Singing Christmas Tree 7.30pm
Thursday December 20th Carols at the Star 8pm

Saturday June 8th Singing Train, Cromford 10am
Saturday July 6th Residential, North Notts, West Retford Hotel Concerts at Rufford, Thoresby and Clumber

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 was Bakewell and next year Retford. We also perform on the singing train - a trip to Cromford is planned in May 2018.
Our choir have smart short sleeved blouses/shirts and optional fleecs and coats.
So we are enjoying ourselves and getting better and better!
