Open Rehearsal - Heritage Open Days
Coinciding with the start of our 50th anniversary season, Eye Bach Choir has been especially pleased to participate in Heritage Open Days this year which saw events taking place across the country during the week Sep 8th-17th. We were also grateful to be supported by Eye Town Council as part of its’ organisation of the regional events for Heritage Open Days.
Members of the were warmly invited to drop in for a while or observe the whole session whilst we rehearsed with our Musical Director Leslie Olive and piano accompanist Karen Smith. The focus was on Vivaldi Gloria – the feature work being performed for our Nov 11th opening season concert.

The Choir was delighted to help the centre celebrate its reopening after a brand new refurbishment. Warm and inviting, the comfortable facility will regularly host a range of local community support groups and activities.
During this lovely afternoon event we performed a small selection of songs from the choir’s repertoire and got the chance to meet some of the organisers, friends and clients of the centre. We were treated to tasty refreshments provided by volunteers and the mobile charity – The Rural Coffee Caravan.

Voice Wise With Lisa Cassidy - Mar '23
A fantastic session with Lisa Cassidy last Saturday. The group, made up of choir members and guests, were coached in some of Lisa’s creative vocal techniques to help improve confidence, breath, tone, and general quality of sound. So clever. Simple but effective ways to tap into hidden depths of vocal capability. We all left full of enthusiasm to continue developing our own personal voices as well as our contribution to Eye Bach Choir. Lisa makes improvement seem so achievable. Truly inspiring!
