The choir, which has been running since July 2009, meets every Wednesday 7-9pm in the Senior Citizens drop-in centre in Keswick (and its only £1 per session!). It is open to all ages and abilities and has participants ranging from age 11 to 70. If you are interested in joining us, please ring Russell on 07799627803 or get in touch via the 'contacts us' page. Please feel free to bring an instrument as a Keswick Community Orchestra is also being constructed alongside the choir.
