The Garrick Singers was set up in 2013 and is a weekly choir for those who are over the age of 60 and/or retired. This is a partnership project between The Courtyard Centre for The Arts and The Music Pool in Hereford, which see’s over 100 people every week come together at The Courtyard. This weekly choir is lead by Jon Watson who is also the leader of the Herefordshire Fire Choir.

Participants don’t need any prior knowledge or experience of singing and don’t need to be able to read music; they just need a willingness and enthusiasm to sing. Every Monday it becomes a real social occasion at The Courtyard with many of the group staying and socialising over  lunch.

The Choir promotes well being and social inclusion and allows the over 60’s to come together in a relaxed session, try something new and meet new people.

The Garrick Singers now regularly performs in various settings across Herefordshire. Performances have included The 2012 Leominster Festival, Hereford town centre for Historical Hereford Day and at Canal Road Day Care Centre.
