KEY OF G COMMUNITY POP CHOIR  


The Key Community Choir is for anyone who loves to sing and socialise! We rehearse on Tuesday Evenings 7-8:30pm at Flockton Church and at Emley church the first Tuesday of the month.

There’s no audition required or prior experience or reading music. We sing a range of popular music and some musical theatre, with many suggestions coming from the choir themselves. It’s a very relaxed musical atmosphere for all ages- families and carers with children are welcome to join the families that already attend. So if you fancy coming along and having a sing get in touch or just pop along on a Tuesday evening for community, fun and music! 🎶
