Introducing our new Children’s Choir:

Altrincham Trebles!


We are delighted to be starting up a new Children’s Choir ‘Altrincham Trebles’ held in school on a Tuesday afternoon: in other words, we’re offering free musical tuition that will last your child a lifetime!

Music is an integral part of our life at St George’s. We have seen many examples of how a good musical education has changed the lives for young people for the better. Rev. Claire remembers her time at Bradford Cathedral, when she and her husband saw many of the young choristers form wonderful communities and then go to prestigious Universities on Choral Scholarships – a journey that started in Primary School.   We are very keen that pupils from our Parish have the same opportunities.

Therefore, our choir will be fun, it will be developing teamwork at a young age, and giving each child the experience of that buzz as their voices harmonise with each other.  Our choir will be focused on teaching our pupils how to sing properly, how to read music, and for those that want it, they will be fully prepared to sit the relevant ABRSM exams; setting them up for any musical adventure that they want to peruse in secondary school.

At the moment, we won’t be asking the choir to sing on a Sunday morning (but as they get more confident, this might be a good experience for them to explore) but we will be using some of our festival services as opportunities for them to perform – Carols by Candlelight, for example. We’ll also be looking at other opportunities, and hopefully, in time, perhaps squeeze in a choir tour too!

Our choir is going to be led by our new  Director of Alty Trebles, Olivia Hamblyn. Olivia is a Mezzo-Soprano studying at the Royal Northern College of Music, and also leads the Liverpool Philharmonic Children & Youth Choirs and Sale Youth Choirs. She is also a Halle Choral Leader and has a passion for bringing music to young people in fun and exciting ways, as she demonstrated in a school assembly today!

Olivia is also exploring how music enriches those with special needs too, particularly for children who are autistic, so it truly is a choir open to all.

All our staff and volunteers are DBSed and safeguarding trained. The choir is free, bar relevant textbooks, exam entry fees and any travelling expenses that we might incur for performances as we go further afield! Support will however be given for families who would struggle to pay for these.

If you would like your child to give them choir a go, please do sign them up by emailing us below– we’d love them to be a founding member of a wonderful choir!
