Crawley’s newest choir will burst into life with Josef Haydn’s The Creation.

The Phoenix Choir of Crawley was created by merging two Sussex choirs with a combined musical heritage of almost a century.

Crawley Concordia Singers was formed in 1962, while The Weald Choir followed eight years later. After four decades of friendly rivalry, they have formed a chorus of more than 80 voices.

Rehearsals begin on Thursday, September 8, in Holy Trinity School Hall, Gossops Green (7.45pm-9.45pm) and new members are welcome.

Chairman Christine Tuson said: “We’re really looking forward to working with our enthusiastic new music director Sam Hayes.”

The concert is at St Wilfrid’s School, Southgate, on December 3 (7.30pm). More info on 01293 515287.
