The 5678 Choir are celebrating their 5th year having started in February 2013 out of a local need to sing after the great success of the village pantomime’s ran by Act Too! Since it began the Choir has grown from strength to strength and we now have around 35 members from Sutton Scotney and surrounding villages.
Here we are singing one of our favourite songs, Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol.
‘Singing is the best anti ageing activity it releases ‘happy’ endorphins’
We get together every Wednesday @ 7.45pm – 9pm at Victoria Hall, Sutton Scotney, Winchester
In 2018 we will be working towards recording and performing an original song, ‘Whenever’ written by Lisa Faye Broadhead in aid of The Gratton Trust. It will be performed at The Gratton Festival on Saturday 30th June and then available to purchase!
Back in May 2016 we joined another local choir, The Dever Singers for 2 concerts in Sutton Scotney and Micheldever, The concerts were a wonderful opportunity for us to come together and the sound was tremendous when we all sang together. The concert in Sutton Scotney raised over £270 towards a village defibrillator.
