Following on from the success of the theatre’s Community Musical, The Hired Man, the Lichfield Garrick has launched a new Community Choir led by musical director Angharad Sanders.
Meeting weekly, the choir will be covering music of all genres and is a fantastic opportunity for local people to sing and improve their vocal skills in a friendly and fun ensemble.
After the Lichfield Garrick’s first Community Musical, The Hired Man, whom Angharad was the Musical Director on, there was a growing demand to develop the Garrick’s Youth Choir into the new Community Choir.
Angharad Sanders commented: “I’m truly thrilled to see the expansion in the choir this year, following the success of the Hired Man. It's such a lovely environment to come and sing and meet new, likeminded people! Here's to a great year!"
Angharad has many years of experience working in theatre and with choirs and singers across the globe. Previous students include Pixie Lott, Layton Williams (Bad Education, Hairspray UK Tour) and Mimi Keene (Eastenders). She has also worked with the young casts of Billy Elliot: The Musical and Matilda on the West End and Broadway and Annie on Broadway.
Angharad spent some time in the United States working with lead actors from TV and films, such as, Pitch Perfect and The Fault In Our Stars. She was a featured tutor on the hit CBBC TV show, School for Stars.
Tim Ford, Artistic Director for the Lichfield Garrick added: “It’s excellent news that Angharad is again leading the Garrick Choir this year. The choir brings a vibrancy of sound across the theatre and it’s wonderful to see the choir progressing with an array of local vocal talent. The choir will be playing a key role as part of our Garrick 300 celebrations in 2017 both here at the Garrick Theatre and across Lichfield.”
The Community Choir will meet every Thursday between 6pm and 7.30pm and is open to all ages and abilities. The choir costs £50 a term.
