Come and Sing with other local choir members and musicians for this special Festival Evensong at St. John’s Church under the direction of Janet Coxwell, Steve Bowey and Christopher Sears.
Don’t worry if you have little or no experience of singing in a choir for Evensong. The idea of the afternoon is to gather people together from the musical community of Newbury, to raise our voices and to enjoy taking part in something a little bit different.
Music for the service is available online in advance (see below) for those who register to sing, ready for the rehearsal on the day.
Evensong is held at many cathedrals and churches and provides a restful, peaceful and contemplative time at the even point of the day, between the end of the working day and nighttime. Anyone can attend Choral Evensong: people of any faith or none, everyone is welcome.
