Goodnestone Choir evolved from the village Christmas choir in 2013 when it became clear that there was a group who wished to sing more regularly. The choir has grown steadily since this time and we now have over 40 members and expand considerably for special services
We are always keen to have new members, the choir is open to everyone and previous singing experience or an ablity to read music is not required. We rehearse in the church every tuesday 7-8pm.
We sing at the first and third Sunday of the month at Goodnestone -09.00 and are increasingly involved in other services and events.
Our planned trips to sing Evensong at Canterbury Cathedral in 2020 and Rochester in 2021 were cancelled due to the pandemic, and the choir has only functioned over zoom for many months, but we are starting to rehearse again now in small numbers as lockdown eases and hopefully will soon be able to get back to normal. We are now scheduled to sing Evensong at Rochester in October.
If you are interested in joining the choir or would like further details then contact Denyer Kittle-Denyer@doctors.org.uk or 01304841826..
