ACCORDING to scientists singing boosts your immune system and releases endorphins which make you feel good. So what better reason to find out what the Cleeve Singers can offer you?
The choir, which has around 40 members, has been going for 25 years and would welcome new members of all ages.
The group is part of Downend Folk House Association at Lincombe Barn and meets on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm.
With a repertoire of mainly feel-good songs, the group holds a number of concerts throughout the year at various locations, often for charity.
The annual Christmas concert at Lincombe Barn has raised money for various charities including Help for Heroes, Hearing Dogs for the Deaf and Great Western Air Ambulance .
Group secretary Patricia Holmes said: “Generally the Cleeve Singers sing songs that make you feel good. Selections from Les Miserables and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat are among the current favourites along with Rhythm of Life and Morecambe and Wise’s delightful Bring me Sunshine.
“There’s something about singing in a choir that brings warmth to your heart and a smile on the face of the audience.”
The Cleeve Singers’ summer concert takes place on Saturday July 13 at Lincombe Barn in Overndale Road, Downend at 7.30pm. Tickets are £3.50 and can be obtained from the Folk House office (0117 956 2367).
