We are a vibrant and friendly group who meet every Tuesday in Worthing, to sing a wide range of music from Mozart to folk songs, Show Tunes to traditional Sussex Songs. Over 40 strong, (and still recruiting) with ages ranging from 20 to over 80, we sing in harmony with a real sense of fun, and love to entertain audiences all around Sussex and beyond. In addition to our public concerts, we also sing for a number of different charities.
Open Evening was a Great Success!
Our Open evening in February attracted seven prospective singers. After some introductory information from Mike Rayment, Howard (our M.D.) began a fairly normal rehearsal allowing for our prospective recruits. By the end of the evening, we had accomplished various breathing and singing exercises (focussing on technique) and had run through several of the numbers we are preparing for this season. At the end of the evening, the Gruffs performed two of our signature numbers for our guests, "Perhaps Love" and "Sussex by the Sea" (of course).
It is hoped that our guests enjoyed the enening and will be considering swelling our ranks in the near future.
If you like singing, why not come along to a rehearsal. You will be able to see how enjoyable it can be singing with a really friendly group of people. You will be able to join in and learn a bit about the Sussex Gruffs. You don’t need to read music, and there are no auditions.
