A music company is looking for singers to join them for a Come and Sing fundraising day.

The Grantham Operatic Society (GOS) is looking for passionate singers to take part in Come and Sing ‘The Pirates of Penzance’.

This one-day event will take place on Saturday October 29, 2022 at ChristChurch on Finkin Street.

All are invited to join GOS in rehearsing Gilbert and Sullivan’s iconic score ‘The Pirates of Penzance‘. No sheet music experience is necessary and sheet music will be provided if required.

In the evening, the Come and Sing Choir will then perform a concert of ‘The Pirates of Penzance’ with narration at 6pm in the church alongside local soloists including soprano Helen Winter, known for European Chamber Opera, Opera Holland Park and ITV’s ‘The Sound of Music’ live.

The musical director of the day is a former GOS, Richard Baker, who has worked as a doctor with West End companies including Mischief Theater and the All Male Gilbert and Sullivan company, including recent West End performances at the Wilton’s Music Hall of the All Male Pirates of Penzance.
