She said 25 of the 44 members had agreed to perform, although some
could not make it because
of holidays and other commitments.
The choir meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month and was started by Mrs Kerslake to catch a trend recognised by BBC TV show, The Choir, for the increasing popularity of community choirs.
The choir does not have religious affiliation and will sing anything from classical
to contemporary pop tunes such as Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water.
Members can come from
any faith - or have none at all.
Many of the choir's members travel from as far afield as Ormesby, Filby, Rackheath and Salhouse.
Meetings start at 7.30pm.
