I've been in the choir for 25 years (I was only 5 wehn I started!!!). Music has always been a passion of mine and it's in my blood.
I like all types of music, from Ma Vlast by Smetana to Ed Sheeran. My favourite
boys are Sir Cliff Richard and the gorgeous Michael Buble.
I have sung many songs over the years, and a few of my favourites are:
I wandered lonely as a cloud
Ragtime Piano Man
I've made such
great friends in our choir. We are a really friendly bunch.
So if you're free on a Thursday evening, come and have a sing and have fun. x
Hi, My name is Janet
I have been in the choir for about 22 years
and I really love it. I am the choir Publicity Officer and Treasurer and anything else they want me to be :)
I work full time at a local secondary school and am always busy doing something, practicing our songs most of the time. We
record our rehearsals and practice throughout the week to get it right.
Some of the favourite songs we sing are:
Thank you for the music
Can you feel the love tonight
The Les Miserables selection
Over the years together, we have not only found favourit pieces of music, but have found best friends. Please come and see for yourself and experience our choir first hand. x
My name is Jeannie
I have asthma and have
difficulty in breathing, singing helps to keep my airways open.
When I joined the Cantrelle Singers about 19 years ago there were about 34 ladies, over the years we have lost a few members, but we are still going strong.
We are all like one happy
family and good friends. We enjoy meeting on Thursday night and singing together.
I enjoy all music and the songs we sing.
My name is Patsy
I sing top soprano. I joined the choir four years ago, although i've
been going for many years to watch my sister Jeannie sing and help with the tea's. What made me join?
I had a stroke a few years ago and couldn't speak properly and was going through a bad time in my life. While I was watching, I found I
could sing my words. So people could understand what I was saying. I never looked back.
For me, the choir means so much. It gave me back my life, great friends, and great laugh's. Love you girls x
Love the new additions to the website, and pleased to hear that Heather has joined you. Good luck for the Lord Mayor's Appeal Concert. Much love, Teresa xx

Hi Margaret Brilliant, I have seen lots of photos of the tour which took place a year or so before I joined the choir. I do hope you will be able to make it to our concert on the 10th of December :)

Good morning! Your invitation on facebook has brought back so many memories. I was with you on our concert tour in Holland and when we did a TV advert singing 'I like to be in America'.
