A benefice choir, the Akeman Church Community Choir, directed by Richard Strivens, meets once a month to sing enjoyable music of all styles, to support and enhance some of our church services.
The choir usually meets on a Sunday afternoon, but occasionally meets at other times. The idea of the choir is to spend a couple of hours rehearsing the music, have some tea and cake, and then sing the music at a service the SAME DAY!
It’s not essential that you can read music, but it will certainly help, and especially if you are an alto, tenor or bass. If you can’t we can sit you next to someone who can.
There is also a small choir which meets in the parish of Kirtlington. Choir practice takes place on an ad hoc basis. The choir is occasionally joined by other singers for special services within the Akeman Benefice.
