It was far from a silent night as the New Tottenham Singers entertained a packed Antwerp Arms with a feast of carols. The free event took place just before Christmas.
The concert finished off a busy few weeks for the choir which staged two major events in November and December – a Concert of Remembrance attended by more than 500 people for the Armistice centenary, followed by their traditional Christmas concert with a 16-piece band staged at their home of the Bernie Grants Centre.
Open to all, the choir is non-audition to include experienced choral singers alongside complete novices.
“And the idea is that those who are more capable help those slightly less capable,” said Gemma. “That’s why people who might not have the background in music choose this choir, because they want to learn and develop their skills.”
The choir is always keen to hear from new members – who will, without doubt, be invited down The Beehive pub following their first rehearsal!
The New Tottenham Singers rehearse every Tuesday during term time at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre in Town Hall Approach Road between 7.30pm and 9.30pm.
