Singing for fun – Accompanist required

24 June, 2019
The ‘Singing for Fun’ group takes place in Halton village and the members are all from various local U3A groups.  They meet on the second Wednesday each month from 10.30 to noon, at Halton Village Hall where there is free parking.
 
Members say it’s a lot of fun, but unfortunately their accompanist is not able to play for them for much longer, so they are searching for a volunteer who could join them as their new accompanist.  The current person plays the piano and accordion, and they also have a violinist, but they would welcome other suggestions.
 
If you are interested or wish to discuss further, please contact singing@wtu3a.org.uk
