About Phoenix Choir of Crawley

Rehearsals take place on most Thursday evenings during the school year, from 7.45pm to 9.45pm at United Reformed Church, Worth Park Avenue, Crawley, RH10 3DF. Our members are ordinary people from a wide range of backgrounds and of varying ages, who simply share a love of music. Some are experienced and some are fairly new to choral singing. Not everyone can read music – it is not essential but it is very useful to know at least the basics. There are plenty of online resources available to help singers to learn their part, and we offer advice and encouragement to members so they can make use of these. We also provide a members area of the website with useful links to help you. Contact us for a chat if you are thinking of coming along, and we will make sure you have up to date rehearsal information and a warm welcome!

PHOENIX CHOIR OF CRAWLEY PICNIC CONCERT

As this year’s Crawley Festival draws to a close, bring a picnic and celebrate Summer to the sound of British and American music for all the family to enjoy. Featuring Martineau Brass.

Come rain or shine, a happy picnic may be guaranteed with Phoenix Choir of Crawley’s indoor concert with its hour-long interval for feasting in-or-outdoors at St Wilfrid’s Catholic School, Crawley, on Saturday 6th July 6.30pm.

An exciting programme of British and American musical favourites through time has been put together to celebrate the special musical relationship that our nations share.

If George Bernard Shaw described our two nations as divided by a common language, something similar may well be said of our music. From the baroque splendour of Handel (who took British nationality after being brought to Britain by George I), through British composers inspired by English and Irish folk songs to the jazz age rhythms of 1930s America, songs from Bernstein’s West Side Story and by present-day composer Eric Whitacre, the evening promises a variety of delights.

The concert will be led by Phoenix Choir’s new musical director, George Salmon with Gina Eason accompanying on the piano and organ and will feature solo, duet and ensemble performances by choir members alongside the choral pieces. The choir will be joined by the fabulous quintet from Surrey, Martineau Brass.

So come and join us for a sensational summer evening of music and fun.

Don’t forget the picnic!

Tickets available from choir members, or 01293 515287 or The Music Company, Northgate Parade or Eventbrite
