Our Cheltenham Show Choir rehearses usually on a Thursday evening, beginning on 24th June 2021, from 7:45 – 9:00pm. During Covid-19, Online rehearsals are being offered on Monday evenings at 7:30pm.
Join our weekly, professionally-led, Covid-secure rehearsals and sing alongside The People's Show Choir and The People's Orchestra live in concert. With the provision of learning resources, including demo tracks to help you practise, you will be able to perform locally with your choir throughout the year.
There are also opportunities for international exchanges and a range of exciting performances and recordings.
Our Cheltenham Choir Leader is Sandra Burne.
Sandra Burne has an eclectic background including: choral leader; tutor/teacher of woodwind (flute, recorder, and sax), Maths, and English for Academic Purposes; and IT management. At various times she has performed in amateur and professional choirs, vocal groups, orchestras, bands and ensembles, in a variety of styles from classical to jazz, from church music to klezmer, and from folk to show tunes. Prior to moving to Cheltenham in 2008, she lived in the US and the Netherlands.
Throughout her life, Sandra has maintained her love of choral singing and started conducting choirs once she realised that, of all her musical experiences, it is conducting that gives her the most satisfaction. Besides leading the Cheltenham People’s Show Choir, Sandra leads chamber, church, and club choirs in the area.
