This class will run as part of our Online programme until May half term. The Brewhouse will reopen by June, and this class will resume in-venue for the second half term. An online option will still be offered with limited spaces. Booking is open now.
Taunton Tones are a community based mixed adult A Capella group, with an eclectic repertoire and a wide range of age and abilities. We sing the same songs as Friday’s Community Choir at The Brewhouse, so feel free to come on either day. This morning session may be best for those who are new.
We perform for local venues and events – any money raised, goes back into the community through local charities.
Singing a wide variety of musical genres including classical, traditional folk, musical theatre, jazz, pop and gospel.
No need to read music and no auditions! New members are always welcome.
The choir will be led by Joanna until mid-May, after which point it will be led by Sasha.
