Opus 18 Logo


Whilst our main reason for singing is for pure enjoyment and for the uplifting experience which singing together brings, from time to time we give public performances for community entertainment and to help various charities chosen by the choir. Preparing for performance sets a goal for the choir, developing a sense of commitment and motivation, the end result heightening self- confidence.


Our next performance is our Summer concert at St Andrews Church on Saturday July 11 at 7:30 PM
