Hemel Hempstead's Aeolian Singers are appealing for more members ahead of their golden jubilee celebrations.

Hemel Hempstead's Aeolian Singers are appealing for more members ahead of their golden jubilee celebrations.

If you fancy singing along to one of the greatest pieces of classical music in Western history, a Hemel Hempstead-based choir is inviting you to join its one-day workshop this Saturday.

The Aeolian Singers are welcoming all vocalists to a practice ahead of their 50th anniversary performance of Handel’s Messiah in April.

The workshop, which runs from 9.30am, when registration begins, to 5pm at John F Kennedy School in Warners End will feature a run-through performance of the great 18th century choral work in the afternoon.

There will be tea and coffee breaks throughout the day, but bringing a packed lunch is advised. The rehearsal is free for any audience members who want to watch, but participants must pay £15 in advance or £18 on the day. Call 01442 871598 for more information.

The choir has secured an £800 grant from Dacorum’s Partnerships, Policy and Innovation Grants Panel to support its half-century celebration, which will see conductor of the group’s inaugural Messiah performance in 1964, Roy Abrams, return on cello.
