Popular Ladies’ Community Choir Treble Clefs is looking forward to another successful year of singing and entertaining in Bexhill.

Following a Christmas performance for the ladies’ section of the Little Common branch of the Royal British Legion, the choir is now returning to rehearsals every Thursday in readiness for its 2016 programme.

Reflecting on their successes in 2015, in only the choir’s second full season, musical director Keith Richardson, said: “I am proud of the commitment that the ladies show week in week out, not only attending rehearsals, but in supporting local concerts and entertainment productions.”

He went on to say: “This last year alone we competed in the Hastings Musical Festival in March before rehearsing in earnest for our appearances in the Bexhill Festival of Music, performing our own annual Summer Spectacular at St Augustine’s Church in July, once again to a sell-out audience.

“We also raised £250 for Bexhill Caring Community charity.

“Many of us joined with other community choirs, during the Festival in Adam Hepkin’s Magic of the Musicals at the De La Warr Pavilion, starring Ruthie Henshall and The Last Night of the Proms.

“Finally, in December, several members performed once more at the De La Warr Pavilion in Adam Hepkin’s Christmas Show starring Aled Jones.

“We hope to go onto bigger and better heights this year.”

The choir’s summer spectacular, on July 4, took on an American Independence theme and included some classic American songs on the bill.

Keith Richardson said: “This was one of our best events yet and the congratulations and praise from the audience, not only on the musical content but on the professional way in which the Spectacular was presented, was testimony indeed to the efforts of a great many people associated with our choir.

“We are a community choir, singing for joy, and it gives us a great deal of joy to be able to put something back into the community.

The choir also sings regularly at various care homes in the area with bookings being taken by Keith Richardson on 01424 218216.
