At the start of this season we welcomed Hayley (soprano) and Tom (counter tenor) as they joined the St Cecilia Singers. Here they tell us a little about their experience of joining the choir.
"Everyone is friendly and welcoming, even the audition - when one felt nervous - was great because they put me at my ease. I have been involved with music all my life since graduating from Italia Conti in London and joined opera companies to the BBC NCW, smaller ensembles including a trio and local chamber choirs and I felt ready for this new challenge.”
"At first I was hesitant as I have had such a long break from singing and didn’t think I was ready for such a high calibre! Once I finally plucked up the courage to audition I was happy that I did.
"The choir has brought back all of my memories and I’m like a duck to water. I feel very welcome in the St Cecilia singers and I believe that I have made the right choice. After singing with a few choirs around Gloucestershire I feel that I have found my perfect fit. I am extremely excited for our upcoming concert and my future with the singers!”
Hayley and Tom are already making an impact in the choir and we're really happy they came to join us. If you're interested in auditioning for the St Cecilia Singers, then please do get in touch.
