Three choirs based in Truro, Falmouth and Newquay will be staging their first concert of the year.

The Good Afternoon Choirs will host the event at St Michael’s Church in Newquay on Saturday, June 3 at 7.30pm.

The choirs are led by Andy Farris with over 85 enthusiastic members who are busy preparing their programme for the concert which will support three charities, Cornwall Youth Choirs, Cornwall Blood Bikes and Gather & Grow, charities chosen by the members of the three choirs.

The Good Afternoon Choirs were started by Bath-based Grenville Jones 13 years ago and there are now 23 across the South West of England with over 900 members ‘Singing in the Afternoon’.

There are no auditions to join and members of the three choirs come from in and around the areas. Truro Good Afternoon Choir meet on a Monday from 1pm-3pm at Truro Methodist Church, Newquay Good Afternoon Choir meet on a Thursday from 1pm to 3pm at St Michael’s Church Hall and Falmouth Good Afternoon Choir meet on a Friday from 1pm to 3pm at Emmanuel Baptist Church. Everyone is welcome to come along to any of the choirs and meet Andy and members of the choir.

The special guests for the concert will be the Redruth Amateur Operatic Society Trust, a talented mixed-voice choir, led by the highly accomplished Alastair Taylor. The choir was formed in January 2004 and has enjoyed many successes over the years, including a multitude of concerts, whilst competing in some music festivals. The choir’s repertoire includes a variety of genres and styles, including modern pop songs, ballads and musical theatre.

Andy said: “It is going to be a great night of music and we are absolutely delighted to be sharing the stage with the Redruth Amateur Operatic Society Trust.”
