A Waterloo-based community choir is expanding by launching a children’s choir. The #LoveToSing choir is for children and young people aged between six and 16 and is run by the Liverpool Echo award-nominated St Edmund’s Choir.
Charlie Corkin, director of St Edmund’s Choir, says: “For more than 20 years, St Edmund’s Choir has engaged with so many different people in the community of Waterloo, Liverpool and beyond. After a surge in interest from young people and families, we’re excited to branch out further and create a children’s choir that lives up to our vision of being free, fun and for everyone.
‘At a time when arts funding is in crisis, we’re privileged and proud to be able to offer what we do for free, with no entry requirements and a vast repertoire of music.’
Both #LoveToSing and St Edmund’s Choir will perform a variety of concerts and events each year, with the new choir’s first public performance coming this December. SEMusic, which is responsible for the development of #LoveToSing, is run by professional music teachers and experienced musicians.
Rehearsals will take place each Wednesday between 5.30pm and 6.30pm at St Edmund’s Church, Oxford Road, Waterloo. For more information, visit www.semusic.org.uk or call 07730 413024.
