St George's Choirs:Come and be part of them!
Music at St George’s is a key part of our life and work
Introducing Russell: Our New Organist & Musical Director!
We are beyond excited to introduce Russell Medley who is our new Organist and Musical Director.
Russell has an incredibly impressive CV, and is currently a Senior Vocal Coach/Repetiteur at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) in Manchester. He is also the Musical Director of the Sale Choral Society, and has been the Musical Director of the Lindow Singers and the Northern England Chorale.
He specialises in the organ, piano, double bass, composition and conducting. He has performed around the world, and spent many years as an examiner for the Associate Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM).
He has also been the Assistant Chorus Master of the Halle Chorus, and has worked with young people at Moreton Hall School in Shropshire and the Centre of Young Musicians in The Hague, alongside establishing a thriving private teaching and coaching practice too.
Introducing Altrincham Trebles: Our New Children’s Choir!
Russell is joining us with the view of rebuilding our church choir, but also starting a children’s choir!
This choir will be open to KS2 and will be held weekly after school for an hour. It will be a fun and a fantastic community. 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.
In other words, we’ll be able to offer free musical tuition that will last your child a lifetime.
Many of us who are not musical, but have had children who have been given opportunities to be well taught and nurtured in all things music, we can testify to the life changing difference that it makes and the opportunities that come from it.
St George’s Choir returns!
We are also keen to rebuild our much missed adult choir too!
Under Russell’s superb direction, we’re going to meeting on a Thursday evening at 7.30pm from the 14th September.
Even if you have never sung in a choir before, why not give it a go?!
