St John’s hopes to become a regional hub for Heart & Soul Swing Band concerts and is appealing to men and women, boys and girls to join in on the fun.
Minister, Rev Joanne Hood, is a singer with the 20-piece band, which performs a mixture of jazz, swing, gospel music, traditional hymns with a contemporary twist and original songs.
The first meeting of Swing Choir took place in St John’s on 16th March and was very well attended. The next session will be held on Saturday 11th May at 1.30 p.m.
“The long term hope is to use the event to inspire people to be part of a community choir that would be able to sing with the swing band at any local concerts in the future.”
