Now the Christmas celebrations are over and we’ve seen in the New Year with a bang, our thoughts inevitably turn to the 12 months ahead.

From quitting smoking to dropping those extra pounds, resolutions are being made by those determined to bring about positive changes, no matter how big or small.

While many of us will have abandoned our earnest plans by the end of the month, there is one step that is sure to make a real difference for aspiring singers.

St Neots Choral Society is holding an open rehearsal on Wednesday, January 14, at its regular venue in the hall at Eynesbury Church of England Primary School, Montagu Street, Eynesbury, from 7.30pm-9.30pm.

Those who used to sing publically or those who would just like to have a try are equally welcome to come and exercise their vocal cords and meet up with the choir.

The 2015 season will include the St John Passion by Bach, which is sure to give the choir plenty to sing. It will be performed with professional soloists and an orchestra on Saturday, March 28, at St Mary’s Church, Eaton Socon, at 7.30pm.

The rest of the programme of events also features a Last Night of the Proms concert. A joint performance with St Neots Sinfonia, it will be held at The Priory Centre on Saturday, June 27.
