Katherine currently conducts St. Barbara’s Church Choir.
She took this on in May 2007 and the choir has grown is numbers and skill ever since. All choristers under 18 work through the RSCM (Royal Schools of Church Music) scheme Voice for Life and the adults have the option to do so as well. Each level is represented by a coloured ribbon which the singers wear with their robes. For more information visit - www.rscm.com/education/vfl/trainingScheme.
The choir sings in the regular Sunday services but also puts on concerts and visits old people’s homes. We have recently sung at the Coventry University Hospital and in the Coventy Precint.
In February 2014 the choir celebrated its 100th Birthday. They celebrated with a concert and then they recorded a CD.
The children in the choir are given the opportunity to do the Arts Award and several have used the choir for their leadership part of the award.
Choir practice is 7pm on Friday evening at St. Barbara’s Church in Earlsdon – all ages welcome.

When asked by a visiting preacher when we had choir practice
one of the choristers replied “We don’t have practice we have fun”.
Being a member of St. Barbara’s choir isn’t all hard work we have socials and various other activities.
Here are the choir making choristers for the
Christmas Tree Festival.
