St Paul's Choir looking to recruit at least 10 more singers

ST PAUL'S Choir director Michelle Jaques is keen to see that a fine Ipswich tradition survives well into the 21st century.

The choir, which sings at every second service at St Paul's Anglican Church in Ipswich, currently has about 20 members.

Mrs Jaques said she was looking to recruit at least 10 more singers and age was not important.

"If we had a 30-voice choir that would make it possible to do some of the great liturgical work, plus some Vivaldi pieces and the great English cathedral pieces," she said.

"A the moment it is a very good choir, with the potential to be one of the best in Ipswich."

New member Mina Amba-Lee said she loved being a part of the St Paul's Choir because she felt she was singing to God himself.

"I always loved singing but I am still learning more all the time," she said.

"I am still trying to find my true voice - it is buried deep inside."

Mrs Jaques said the choir provided a great opportunity for any year 12 students who were part of their school choir and had recently graduated.

The choir practices every Sunday following the morning service.

Mrs Jaques said anyone who wanted to join the choir could contact her on 0409 578 521.
