Linskill Community Choir was started by Irene Anderson and Paul McDermott in October 2013. It began initially as a 6 week experiment but nothing could have prepared them for the response from the local community.
About 30 people attended the first rehearsal and sang their hearts out. With just a handful of practice sessions completed the choir went on to sing at five different local events. This in turn prompted a growth in confidence from within the choir, Irene, Paul and the choir members decided that the choir should continue past the initial 6 week trial period.
Since then the choir has sung for North Tyneside events such as the opening of the Dome , Mouth Of The Tyne Festival and the Victorian Christmas market .
The choir has also sung at The Sage , Whitley Bay Playhouse , The Phoenix Theatre as well as putting on their own concerts .
'The group really gelled together beautifully, we were having far to much fun to stop' - Irene
'Wow! it's such a joy to see so many people coming together to enjoy each others company and sing. It has to be said though that sometimes laughing gets in the way of the serious work' - Irene
The aim of the choir is to sing popular, upbeat songs in a fun, happy environment with a view to performing locally .
We work in blocks of six weeks bookable in advance . For more information about spaces and pricing email:- firstname.lastname@example.org
