The Marple Secret Singers group has been asking about moving from fortnightly to weekly classes for some time now and I just haven’t had the capacity to do it. Well then I realised that what I needed was help and I found it in the form of Carol Donaldson! Carol has been a choir leader for 13yrs and currently leads Calder Valley Voices and Wrexham community choir (among other things). Just a quick look at her website was enough to know that we ‘sing from the same hymn sheet’ in terms of choirs and I couldn’t be more delighted that she will be part of Secret Singers.

The plan is that Carol and I will do the classes on alternate weeks starting from 25th February. Carol will teach the Secret Singers program so that the Marple group will still join the rest of the classes for events such as the Big Sings and Sing for Water. This way the Marple group will have the same number of session as all the other choirs. I hope this will see this great group go from strength to strength.
