2013 was a busy year!
The Greenstede Singers won a trophy at the East Grinstead Music Festival and sang a May concert at the Peredur Arts Centre. They teamed up with Choirpower for a Christmas concert  at Chequermead Arts Centre. they sang a very successful concert in Dormansland Parish Church, which raised over £1200 for Action Medical Research. We were delighted to welcome harpist, Lizzie Peacock, as our soloist for the latter concert.
We rounded the year off with carols at Standen - the hot drinks and mince pies were great!!

Choirpower sang a very successful (if very hot!) summer concert at Chequermead. In the autumn we joined up with other artists in Eastbourne, raisng money for the local theatre. We ended the term in style at Chequermead, with a Christmas concert, while supporting local Mayoral and Rotary Club charities with carol singing in the High Street and Meridian Hall.

Congratulations to all last year's exam students! 100% pass rate on all practical and theory exams.
Both Grade 8 ABRSM singers passed with Merit grades.
All 9 Music theatre candidates passed with Distinction, including two Grade 8's.

We are looking forward to Choirpower's Easter Concert on April 5th at Peredur Arts Centre. Easter eggs and Easter bonnets to the fore!
The Greenstede singers will be presenting a programme of partsongs for the Siroptimist Society on May 10th in Trinity Methodist church. All welcome.
