If you can sing, then it's not too early to think about Christmas!
On Wednesday evenings why not come along to the Methodist Hall in High Street and learn to sing the chorales and choruses of Bach's Christmas Oratorio?
The Thame Choral Society practises in Haddenham but holds its Christmas Concert in St Mary's, Thame (December 12th). Besides the Bach, there will be some carols in interesting settings as well as a few light-hearted numbers.
We have a very lively conductor in Helen Swift. Musical in every pore, and with the odd dazzling burst of her operatic soprano, she draws us in to her world of song.
Rehearsals are fun but also serious: each evening will leave you with a sense of real progress. It's a friendly group, including singers of all levels of experience, and for all of us an evening's singing is excellent therapy for body and spirit.
Wednesday evenings 7.30-9.30, Methodist Hall. Our secretary is Liz Hammond on 216801.
