New year; new singers

Filling the nave

Filling the nave – the Minster Choir in September 2018

We remain very bad at updating this site; for all the latest news, please visit our Faceboook, Twitter, or Instagram pages.  However, the new choral year has got off to a stonkingly good start.  We have welcomed new choristers to the extent that we are having difficulty finding robes for everyone!  Our Minster Singers have given their first concert, including a concert performance of Dido and Aeneas, to a very large audience and sing their first Choral Evensong of the term for Michaelmas, tomorrow.  The Minster Choir has now sung several services, and has done so with aplomb with our newest choristers settling very well.  The number of schools represented has increased this term, too.  We now have eleven schools represented within the ranks of our Choristers, with more represented within the ranks of our Choral Scholars and Minster Singers.  We have choristers who are educated in Caistor, Cleethorpes, Grimsby, and Louth and have singers who live in walking distance of the Minster as well as those who are driven for about thirty minutes to get here!

Our schools’ work continues, apace.  Our Director of Music has already been into a number of schools, and already has dates in the diary for further school visits, and to contribute to an assembly at one of the schools already visited, where he had the privilege of listening to almost every child in Key Stage 2 sing, individually.  Our Associate Choristers have joined us for two rehearsals and a Choral Evensong and we have plans to increase their numbers, too.

Our Director of Music is always happy to meet potential recruits for the Choir, whether they be children (from any school, boys or girls, aged 7+), teenagers, young adults, or not so young adults!  Email steven.maxson@grimsbyminster.co.uk for further details, or telephone Grimsby (01472) 277277.

Onwards and upwards!
