Reports on previous concerts in 2016
Many members of the choir travelled to Eastbourne for the weekend of 22 - 24 July to sing in the Central Methodist Church. These weekends away are an opportunity to get to know other members of the choir in a social setting and a good time was had by all. The weather was especially kind and our concert was much appreciated.
Summer Charity Concert, Saturday 16 July
Another successful concert, with a varied repertoire, including several modern pieces specially arranged for the choir by Bob Ramskill, in particular The Rose, commissioned in memory of a former founder member of the choir.
The bucket swing raised nearly £300 for the Lymphoma Association and they will also receive a proportion of the profit from the event.

We are delighted that our Spring concert at St David's in Shenley Green raised an amazing £1350 towards the repairs to the roof.
Thank you to all those who came along to what was a highly enjoyable concert and helped us to raise the money.
A Phoenix First!
We have recorded our first CD

Choir Tour 2017
The decision has now been made that the next Choir tour will be a trip to Malta in May 2017. We shall stay for a week, during which time we will perform at several local venues. This promises to be another highly successful venture, with beautiful scenery and plenty for everyone to enjoy.
| Phoenix Singers - Birmingham|
Phoenix Singers is a mixed voice choir performing a wide variety of choral works. It is based in south Birmingham. Formed in 2001, Phoenix is currently 120 strong and, as well as performing regularly in and around Birmingham, has established an international reputation through a series of European tours.
James Llewelyn Jones is our Musical Director. James is well-known for his work as Conductor of the Canoldir Male Choir and the Birmingham Hospitals' Choir. He has recently taken up an appointment as Conductor of the prestigious Rhos Choir.
We are also fortunate to have a superb accompanist for the choir, in the person of Sara Wilander, who is a real 'treasure' being both highly proficient and totally unflappable!
