Here We Are in Rehearsal

Temponilla-T-Logoemponilla is a small, Telford-based choir or (as we prefer to call ourselves) vocal ensemble.  We formed in the Summer of 2000 as a result of one of our sopranos needing some help when asked to sing at a wedding.  Calling on some friends for assistance, the group enjoyed themselves so much that Temponilla was born.

As all the members of the newly formed Temponilla had only sung with larger choirs previously, this new grouping was a challenge, but one we all relished.  With only one book of music to call our own (the Oxford Book of Carols) we undertook our first performance at Christmas (luckily!) in a local church which had been kind enough to allow us to rehearse at their premises.  We can't have been too bad as this resulted in us receiving some donations from the church members towards the purchase of new music!

We were soon requested to put on a fund-raising concert at another local church and we haven't looked back since.

Shortly after that we were extremely lucky to have a very talented local pianist, Alison Coats, join us as our regular accompanist and together we have performed many concerts in Shropshire, Herefordshire, North Wales, Birmingham and Staffordshire, helping to fund-raise for various churches and charitable groups.

Choir members have changed over the years and we have increased in number, currently with 15 members; 2 new members having joined us recently to swell the  Alto section.

Our repertoire is wide and varied covering anything from Henry VIII to Mozart to the Beatles!  We love our singing and aim to spread the joy of music to others.

We now meet for rehearsals fortnightly on Sundays from 3.00 til 5.00pm at Sutton Hill Church.
