The Harmonique Singers are looking for new singers. The choir started in September 2011 and they have had an exciting and fun year. Their first performances were at the Hurst Green School Christmas Fair, and the lighting of the Christmas Lights at the new shop site. In May they sang at the quiz night for the Twinning association, and they sang two songs during the Comedy Capers Children in Need concert in November 2012, and again at the lighting of the Christmas Lights. The group has a regular committed group of members meeting on Mondays at 8pm in the village hall, and would like some new members. The group sing Rock Pop and Gospel and there are no auditions, it is a choir for having fun. For more information contact Rebecca on 07855691855.
