Community choir celebrates fifth birthday
3:50pm Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
A COMMUNITY choir celebrated its fifth anniversary with a dinner dance and live music.
The 81 members of the Lowton, Golborne and Newton community choir gathered to congratulate their founder and musical director Olwyn Rowlinson on the choir’s success.
Inspired by a BBC programme, Olwyn set out to create a choir that would attract a wide range of people who wanted to sing together regardless of their age or musical ability.
LGN committee member Liz Rooke said: “We try and put fun, friendship and support to the forefront of what we are about. Some of our members have been through challenging times be it the loss of a spouse, loneliness, isolation or a serious illness.
“The choir, through singing and friendship, has helped so many people cope with their difficulties.”
The choir has taken part in a wide variety of events, including fundraisers, weddings and Christmas celebrations.
To book the choir, call Olwyn on 01942 602777.
