A POPULAR choir is offering budding singers a unique opportunity to perform with them.

St Mary’s Choir, in Maldon, is set to host an event giving adults and children the chance to spend a morning singing with them.

It also aims to allow residents to experience the “wellbeing” effects of singing, and to make great music at the same time.

The popular choir has performed all over the world as well as singing every week in Maldon.

It hosted the highly awaited Maldon Festival finale at the end of last month.

The upcoming event will run from 10.30am to 1pm on Saturday, October 16, at St Mary’s Church.

There will be games for children and sessions on “finding your voice” and on getting to know Fauré’s beautiful Requiem.

Guests will also be introduced to the church’s new pipe organ.

The event is free but booking is essential.
