Singing is good for your wellbeing!

August 31 2021

The Filtones Choir has survived the last eighteen months and will relaunch with its first rehearsal on Wednesday 15 September at a new venue – St Teresa’s Community Centre, at 71 Gloucester Road North, Filton.
Filtones member Dot Bryant says: “We are an afternoon choir and rehearse from 1.45 to 3.45pm every Wednesday with a short break for tea and gossip!
“We welcome new members of all ages to join us free for the first four weeks to see if you like us.  Now that many work from home, we hope that it may enable you to join in a social activity with like-minded people away from your own four walls for a couple of hours in congenial company.
“We are a four part harmony choir and are in need of all voices, sopranos, altos, tenors and basses. If you’re not sure of your range don’t worry as you will soon discover what suits you.  We are a non-auditioning choir, and although it’s not essential for you to read music, you will soon begin to assimilate this as a new skill, which is always good for exercising those grey cells!”
For more information please ring Dot on 07870 984760 or 0117 969 654 or Janet on 0117 924 1534 or email dorothy.bryant@btinternet.com
Please Note: For the reassurance of our current members, if you are joining us as a guest, we trust that you will have had two doses of the vaccine.  Seating will be spaced and we ask that you wear a mask when moving about the building, but may remove it once seated and singing.
