VOCAL HIGH, a new choir with singers from around Pershore and Worcester, are preparing for what they describe as "a unique winter performance" in Pershore.

The choir prides itself on "a diverse repertoire".

A spokesman said; "The current programme ranges from an original 'mashup', taking in music by David Bowie, Stevie Wonder and The Who, to music by folk-rockers Fairport Convention, sea shanties, medieval music and lively African songs."

Paula Evans, singer with early music duo Aphelion, vocal coach and Director of Music for the Rivers Academy, said of the group: "Singing with others is such a natural and positive thing to do. There are lots of choirs and singing groups locally that all serve different functions, from choirs that audition, to community groups that just sing for pleasure.

"Vocal High doesn’t audition, but all singers receive guidance on technique, tone and blend, and the repertoire offers a different experience to that of other choirs."

Chris Long - keyboard player, arranger and composer with Vocal High added: ‘It’s been great to see people grow in confidence and find that, often contrary to their expectations, they can take part successfully in a three or four part harmony arrangement and learn quickly while having fun."

The concert 'On A Winter's Night' will take place on December 9, from 8pm, at St Andrew's Church, Pershore.
