What members feel about the choir
Here are some quotes from choir members:
"Around 7 years ago, after finishing a period of study, I wanted to start singing in a choir again. I chose three to try- the Reading Haydn choir was second on the list and I never got to the 3rd! What I liked immediately about it was that the members seemed serious and committed to singing well, whilst at the same time were very friendly. I really enjoy it and Thursday rehearsals are one of the highlights of my week."
"I joined the Reading Haydn Choir back in the early 1990s having sung in various choirs most of my life...and I've been singing with the Choir pretty much ever since. I find singing with the Choir uplifting...I always find rehearsals stimulating and that I'm less tired after than before them! And I get a great buzz from performing in concerts. It's especially fun when we rehearse and perform new pieces, such as the Chilcott St John Passion that we're singing for our next concert."
"I enjoy singing with the choir and it's good for me. Yes singing is good for you! On a Thursday night I find being part of the choir takes me to another place, free from the stresses and concerns of life. I enjoy the musical mix and vocal training I receive. I feel it is important to do something completely different at least once during the week, there's nowhere I'd rather be on a Thursday evening!"
