What do Bohemian Rhapsody, Scarborough Fair and Sweet Child of Mine have in common?

The answer is that these classic, if contrasting songs, will all feature in en Choir’s Whitstable concert later this month.

Led by musical director Emily Peasgood, and mainly singing in four part harmony, the 60-strong ensemble will return to St Alphege Church for what is set to be another sell-out night of feelgood music.

The performance will feature a talented house band: bass player Akos Hazsnos, percussionist Matt Hodge and Chris Denham on guitar.

Special guests from Margate-based sister choir the BIGMOUTH Chorus will also be taking part.

Emily said: “en Choir have worked tirelessly this year, striving for excellence, to develop our best concert yet, with new music from artists like U2 and Cyndi Lauper and some powerful features such as Rhythm of Life and Bring Him Home from Les Miserables.”

en Choir members, aged from 16 to 90, come from Whitstable and the surrounding area, including Herne Bay, Faversham and Canterbury.

“Anyone can join regardless of their experience,” said Emily.

“Through a range of workshops and rehearsals the choir achieve very high standards in performance, singing feelgood pop, rock, soul, gospel and world music songs. This year’s concert is full of lively happy music and will be a real treat.”

The concert takes place at St Alphege Church, High Street, Whitstable, at 7.30pm on Saturday, July 21. Doors open at 7pm.
