Personal stories from current choir members: Sue

Sue McGann ( soprano – and a new member)

“Although I have only been with the choir for a year, I feel I am with a happy group of ladies who can forget their problems for two hours and focus on the enjpoyment gained from singing.Sometimes it is difficult as, like many ladies in the choir, I cannot read music, but, with the help of our talented MD we succeed and make a good sound. Its great when it all comes together! I wish I had joined twoenty years ago.”

Personal stories from current choir members: Pam

Pam Miller ( alto – and a new member)

“I was persuaded to join the choir by my friend who has been a member for several years. I was a bit unsure as I hadn’t sung since I was in the school choir ( many years ago!). The choir members have been very welcoming and friendly and I have quickly felt comfortable at the practices. The conductor Lynne, makes the singing fun and includes fascinating bits of singing theory.I had completely forgotten how much I enjoy singing, so I have a very satisfying new hobby”

Personal stories from current choir members: Margaret

Margaret Thomas ( second soprano – and a longstanding member)

 “In the early 80’s I had 4 children and a husband who worked all the hours God sent. I felt I needed some ‘me’ time. A friend took me along to Sefton Ladies Choir and it was the best move I ever made. The night I joined, the Choir was having a photograph taken by the Formby Times as they had come first in a Music festival and the room was buzzing with joy and camaraderie – and it has been like that over the last 30 years for me. So, if you want to forget your worries and cares every Tuesday night and make some lovely friendships and , of course, some lovely music, please come along to the Methodist Church Hall, Elbow Lane at 7.45pm. You’ll be glad you made the effort!”
