A CHORAL society is about to begin its new year.

The Stour Choral Society is holding a social evening at the Methodist Church Hall, in South Street, Manningtree on Monday.

A spokesman for the society said: “We are looking forward to another successful year of music-making with our music director Susie Hyman.

“We have three concerts planned for the year, the first will be on November 30.

“Our spring concert on March 28 will be Handel’s Messiah, and at the end of June we will sing with local school children.

“We look forward to welcoming anyone who would like to sing with us.

“There are no auditions and help is available if your music-reading skills are not good.

“In common with many choirs nowadays, we especially welcome people who can sing tenor or bass parts.”
