Since last month vocal choir Meerhoven Old Stars has been revived in association Zangrijk. Thirty-five enthusiastic ladies and gentlemen meet weekly to sing. New members are welcome.
The vocal choir Meerhoven Old Stars was active last year with a subsidy from football club DBS, but now continues independently as an association. Marga van Dijck, chairman of Zangrijk: “We sing every Thursday from 10 am to 12 noon in the canteen of DBS. The repertoire is low-threshold, because it is about the pleasure of singing together. We sing beautiful canons, pop/folk/ballads from the past and present. Due to the good development of the choir, we are also building towards polyphonic music. We allow ourselves to be challenged by our conductor Caroline Chamboné”.
Van Dijck: “We hope to welcome many new members, because singing together is fun, you are from the street, it binds and fraternizes. In addition, it works blood pressure lowering and it is free of stress. If you like to sing and you want to see if Zangrijk is for you, you can always attend a rehearsal. We welcome interested parties. You do not need to register in advance, you can do that just before 10 am when we start. The first rehearsal of the new season starts on Thursday, August 23, 2018, at 10 am. Location: canteen football club DBS, Het Schaapsdijk 109 in Meerhoven.
