All Aloud! – A Community Choir in Leatherhead Press Release – February 2012

A new community choir has recently been set up in Leatherhead and is welcoming new members.
All Aloud! was set up as part of a county-wide community singing project called ‘Singing Surrey’ and currently meets weekly in north Leatherhead.
The aim of the choir is quite simply to give people who like to sing an opportunity to do so, whether they have a background of music or not.
People of all abilities get regular singing practice and the opportunity to learn different styles of music and gain new singing skills.   Sessions are informal and members rehearse and perform a wide variety of music ranging from African lullabies to modern pop songs.
It is not necessary to be able to read music to join and there are no auditions. All ages are welcome but children must be accompanied by an adult. 
The choir is led by a professional musician, who is enthusiastic about singing and committed to the aims of the choir. 
The choir meets at Kingscroft Chapel Hall in Kingscroft Road (on the corner of Kingscroft Road and Leatherhead Bypass Road), and there is parking either in Kingscroft Road or at the Hall. 
Funded initially by a grant and assistance from Arts Partnership Surrey (http://www.artspartnershipsurrey.org.uk), and a recent donation from the Police Property Fund (http://www.surrey.police.uk/media/news_item.asp?area=12&itemID=14826) the choir is now independent and run by and for its members.
The choir meets on Tuesdays between 6.30pm and 8.00pm, usually in school term time. Telephone the numbers, or write to the email addresses, below for more information or just come along.  You will be made very welcome.
