community choir formed by residents in Burnham-On-Sea
of local people have formed a new community choir in Burnham-On-Sea.
Almost 50 people attended the group's first singing session at
Burnham Community Centre in Berrow Road - and a further session
is now being planned for next month.
The group's leader Peter Olsen told Burnham-On-Sea.com he was
delighted with the turnout at the first session.
"All the music was learnt by ear and repetition - quite
a challenge for many of us - and there was not a sheet of music
"We went on to go through the basics of singing technique
and two-part, three-part and four-part harmonies."
"A mark of the success of the evening was that only two
of the 49 decided that it wasn't for them. We look forward to
meeting the other 47 in the New Year, along with any newcomers."
