We meet every Monday afternoon at 1.45 pm – 4.00pm at The Methodist Church Hall, May's Lane, Stubbington. We can use both front and rear car parks.
We are also extremely lucky to have two very well respected local musicians, Jay Deeble as our Conductor and Jill Race as our pianist.
Why not come along and see what we are doing and maybe, even, join in. We are over 70 in number from three or four local U3A's.
The choir is split into 4 parts, our ladies singing Soprano and Alto and our men into Bass and Tenor. We could certainly do with a few more gentlemen's voices. Listen to some of our popular songs listed under "links" on the page.
Our music ranges from specifically designed choral pieces including works by George and Ira Gershwin, through to outstanding show pieces, for example "The World in Union". And by way for a complete change, there is always fun in singing Doug Coombes’ arrangements of "Sing around the World", a fascinating collection of Folk Songs.
Then, now and again, we are invited to sing at the Monthly Meeting of Stubbington U3A, at other local U3A's, local schools, Community events and other local musical concerts.
Due to the popularity of the Stubbington U3A Choir, membership is now closed and a waiting list to join is in place. Please still contact the Group Leaders for further details.
The attendance fee is £2.00 per week.
Within the first month of attending we request a one off payment of £30.00. This purchases the sheet music and music books the choir is currently using. Any music that is required after this is bought from Choir funds.
