Upton Community Choir was formed in 2013 and is run by community musician Clare Newbould. The choir sings a broad repertoire of music from folk songs and World Music to medlies from musicals and contemporary pop songs.
Rehearsals have been very different over the last two years since the first lockdown. However, we have kept singing throughout, meeting online for many months and finally rehearsing together in person from September 2021. Here's a list of some of the songs we have been learning: Seasons of Love, Memory, Happy Together, Bring Me Sunshine, Bye Bye Love, It's In His Kiss, How Sweet the Sound, Zidele Amathambo, Edelweiss, So Long Farewell, I Say A Little Prayer, Wellerman, Mr Blue Sky, For Once In My Life + many more.
As a community choir, we are inclusive, welcoming and place emphasis on enjoyment through singing.
